Paper Details:

This paper explores smart thermostats as an instance of the Internet of Things (IoT), a system of connecting once-isolated things, with a focus on how IoT can offer new benefits to individuals. The focus on individual benefits of IoT is prompted by recognition that the perception and reality of such benefits to individuals (acting in both institutional and non-institutional settings) is foundational to successful adoption of new technology, particularly in consumer-facing deployments of IoT.
