Abstract

On September 24, 2019, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) hosted a one- day workshop entitled “Human Factors in Smart Home Technologies.” The workshop addressed human considerations for smart home devices, including usability, user perceptions, and end-user privacy and security considerations. Invited speakers from industry and academia provided their perspectives via presentations and a moderated panel. In addition to becoming more aware of human aspects of smart home technologies, the attendees from industry, government, and academia had the opportunity to influence NIST's future research direction in this area by voicing their opinions, challenges, and ideas during afternoon breakout sessions. This report provides a summary of the workshop, including presentations, panel discussion, and breakout session overviews.
