Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) is recently attracting vendors like Google, Homey, and Samsung that have already brought to the market a plethora of devices and services supporting smart home automation. However, recent studies have shown that end-users having little knowledge of the features and possibilities of IoT devices, face difficulties in conjuring up meaningful use scenarios that combine such devices. Therefore, they fail to anticipate useful configurations beyond those provided by vendors and hence missing out on the vast potential of the IoT. We present an on-going investigation that explores the potential of sourcing IoT-relevant scenarios from a popular microtask-crowdsourcing platform, and a preliminary evaluation of such scenarios with respect to their originality and practicality. This work paves the way for the automated leverage of crowdsourced user scenarios to support IoT end-users.
