We are arriving in a new age of computing technology i.e. Internet of Things (IoT). IOT is a sort of “universal global neural network” in the cloud which connects a variety of things. The IoT is a smartly linked devices and systems which comprised of elegant machines interacting and communicating with other machines, environments, matter and infrastructures and the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and sensor network technologies will increase to meet this new challenge. The Internet of Things is the diagram that ordinary everyday objects can, with the addition of sensors and communications interfaces, be made ‘Smart’. In this context ‘Smart’ means that they are able to communicate useful information about their current state, their location and the environment they exist in. The technology behind this idea has been applied to areas such as energy efficiency, a virtual lost property office, tachographs for individual road charging, RFID systems in logistics and bar codes on supermarket products that can be read by mobile phone applications to give nutritional information, allergy warnings or ethical information. However, in this paper we shall be investigating the Internet of Things from the perspective of its application in what have become known as ‘Smart Homes’ and more specifically how issues relating to Human Computer Interaction (HCI) have been considered when developing products and appliances therein. First we shall provide a background to the subject, highlighting its origins and noting key technical themes. Following this we shall look in more depth at studies relating to key HCI concerns we have identified.
