Domestic environments are receiving increasing attention as sites of deployment for pervasive technologies, as evidenced by the growing number of studies of homes and by the maturing of technologies in prototype aware/smart homes. The challenge now is to move technologies out of purpose built homes into everyday environments in ways that will fit with existing buildings and the people who live in them. In this paper we describe our find-ings from fieldwork designed to gain an understanding of current experiences with technologies in the home that bear similarities with emerging applications: sensors and sophisticated home automation/entertainment system

Notes

Originality: Describes the `routine' problems people have with current technologies and sensors in the home; Rigour: Qualitative analysis of in-home studies and interviews in multiple homes, combined with interviews with `home automation┬┐ installation companies. Significance: Provides critical counterpoint to dominant paradigms in pervasive computing about advanced sensor/network technology being everywhere in the home and working seamlessly. Outlet/citations: Key international conference in this area (along with Ubicomp); 13% acceptance rate in 2006. (just published)
