Smart Homes

Smart Home in a broad sense. As many things that make a home smarter are dumb technologies. And some ‘smart’ technologies make a home dumber.

We will look at the role of a house from multiple angles.

  • Home as a shelter
  • Home as a family space
  • Home as a productive unit (food, water, energy, products)
  • Home as a meeting space
  • Home as a working and learning space
  • Home as a node or connector in the neighbourhood, as active part of a city
  • Home as a platform for sensors whose data is used at home and across the community it is located in
  • Home as an actuator platform that actively responds to its own sensor data, and data signals from other sources
  • And above all the role of smart residents, in creating such a home.
