dc.description.abstractThis thesis is to determine people’s perception of Smart home devices and the factors which influence this perception. Smart Home devices are becoming more common as many companies are launching various such devices. Although many companies are pushing these devices with extensive marketing, do people feel a need for these devices in their home? This thesis tries to find the answer to this question and what factors are affecting these opinions. Focus group methodology is used for this thesis. It is commonly used to perform qualitative researches. Based on the analysis of the Focus Group discussions, it is found that most people (from the targeted population) will be interested in adopting these smart home devices. There are some concerns which will still need to be addressed by the company such as security, Privacy and some health concerns to make the consumers more comfortable in adopting these devices.en_US
