In this paper, Cees Links analyses why the Smart Home revolution seems to be taking much longer one of these is the fact that the terms themselves -Smart Home and IoT -are ill conceived and not really very appropriate. Most devices –labeled “IoT”or “smart”–are simply connected devices. Smart means intelligence. Smart means the device and solution can analyze the incoming data and then make a decision to control or activate a device within the home or facility. Most current so-called smart devices are little more than internet-enabled remote controls.
