Abstract
The establishment of a smart home ecosystem – an assemblage of smart technologies across segments in private households – generates value for both companies and customers. However, the complexity of a smart home ecosystem based on data sharing and personalization as a necessity for value perception also generates tensions between the value created by data sharing and the value of privacy. Therefore, this study, based on a survey of 1049 consumers, investigates the acceptance and use of smart home devices and smart home ecosystems by observing drivers of personalization, trust, privacy components and technology acceptance. The empirical analyses show that especially consumers’ perceived value from personalization plays a significant role in smart home ecosystem acceptance. This research offers results for theory development and practical implications by extending existing technology acceptance models to ecosystems and by showing the need for a focus on sophisticated personalized applications within a smart home ecosystem.
