Abstract:Lately, the Internet of Things is gaining enormous attention. Especially the smart home area constitutes a big part of the Internet of Things’ consumer applications. Although smart home technology is argued to be one of the most promising markets, diffusion is limited and companies struggle to exploit the market’s opportunities. Therefore, it is crucial to understand why people refuse the use of smart home devices and which factors influence the acceptance of smart homes. This paper provides the variables effecting smart home use by taking the Technology Acceptance Model and resistance barriers as guidelines. Furthermore, it explains what is necessary in order to increase people’s acceptance towards smart home use and how smart home companies can tackle the low diffusion rate.
