Abstract

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd Smart homes allow owners to monitor and control wide range of home appliances remotely and intelligently. Despite its potential, the acceptance of smart homes by residents is still far from expectations. Thus, this study aims to investigate the factors that influence residents’ acceptance and usage of smart home. By extending the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), this research incorporates more factors related to users such as trust, awareness, enjoyment, and perceived risks to study intention to use smart homes and investigate their impact quantitatively by using SEM-PLS approach. Results show that trust, awareness, enjoyment, and perceived risks, with perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use significantly influence attitude towards smart homes which, in turn, impact the intention to use smart homes.
