Smart / Connected home
home entertainment systems, communication
The applications range

A permanently futuristic concept; “Jetson style living”, expectations what “care” or “cooking” is

stigma, privacy concerns and lack of knowledge about the available technology

reliability problems (assisted technologies, mantenance)

neccessity for market research

Although from the industry point of view often high prices for the smart home systems are justified by the cost of innovation, there is little explanation of the value to the end users.

Who will pay for the smart technology, especially assisted living one: the elderly / sick themselves, the families, the government?

Strategic choice between open and closed business models with implicate different modes of cooperation and different phases of market development

Open development of interconected devices will offer more choice and full customisation of smart home stystems, but also means greater competition
In total 40 papers mentioned at least one of the market barriers
The business perspective
The smart home concept developed from the technology-push of the 80s and consumer-oriented pervasive computing of the 90s

Current demographic, demand for assisted living, and entertainment systems makes the smart product lucrative business opportunity and an option for longer independent living
