Abstract

In this paper, we propose a framework for decision modeling of users in smart home design. Individual’s preferences that derived from both of his/her "Current Lifestyle" and "Future Lifestyle" are considered as the main factors that influence the final decision, Such that the compatibility of the choice alter-natives with these preferences sets up the final decision for the individual. We tested this framework with a virtual experiment. The experiment was conducted among 250 respondents, who were asked to explore a smart home in a virtual environment and then to make a decision among design alternatives for different parts of a smart home. Choices and the underlying effective factors were evaluated by MultiNomial Logit model. The outcomes adequately ascer-tained the proposed framework. Understanding of the effective factors on the user’s design decisions for a smart home helps designers to incorporate design alternatives with users’ demands in the real world.
