Abstract/Summary The Smart Home Control project is exploring the potential for enabling technologies to be used by households to manage energy consumption. The project includes a content analysis of marketing materials for 'off-the-shelf' smart home control devices and a trial of devices in 46 households. A range of household types are involved, including households who may be financially disadvantaged, disengaged, and/or vulnerable in a changing energy market. The project will provide a realistic analysis of the benefits and detriments of smart home control devices and concepts for residential consumers in the context of their everyday lives.
