In the present energy levered world, the concept of energy conservation is in the high priority. People are looking for new ways to save energy and alternative energy sources. In this regard, smart home technology can be one of the best solutions. Thus, the aim of this study is to assess the adoption of smart home technology from users’ perspective. Unified theory of acceptance and use of technology- 2 framework with privacy risk has been applied to assess the users’ adoption behavior. A total of 175 responses are analyzed using partial least square- structural equation modelling method to test the proposed research model of this thesis. Eight important factors have been used to assess the users’ behavioral intention to adopt. Among the eight formulated hypotheses, four are supported. It is found from this study that, performance expectancy, privacy risk, hedonic motivation and habit significantly influence the users’ behavioral intention to adopt smart home technology. A significant number of respondents are concerned about the safety of their personal data in this technology. Moreover, a multi group analysis showed a significant influence of performance expectancy and habit on the male users, and hedonic motivation on the female users in the adoption of smart home technology. The only dependent variable of this study i.e. behavioral intention is explained by almost 59% variance. It is also evident from this study that users always prefer maximum values while considering to adopt a technology e.g. smart home technology.
