Lessons Learned from a Smart Home Demonstration in New York City

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


While the concept of a smart home may still appear to be confined to the niche market, there now is a wide range of commercially mature, consumer-facing smart home devices that can improve comfort and convenience for a home's occupants, and that also have the potential to save energy. These products all fall under a broad category of technology known as home energy management systems (HEMS). In recent years, many HEMS products have proven to be cost-effective and useful but the public has been slow to adopt them, especially when compared to the rapid adoption of smartphones, voice assistants, and other Internet of Things (IOT) devices.
