Abstract

This paper highlights three pairs of implicit but important human values that are sometimes overlooked or taken for granted in the design of mainstream products for the home. They are private and shared, present and past, control and abdicate. We argue that these values are worth preserving and balancing in interactions with Internet-of-things (IoT) products at future digital home if subjective well-being is under consideration. We conducted a qualitative field study with 11 families and present these values in pairs in order to inform designers of the tradeoffs that should be considered in their practices.
