Tiivistelmä

We developed and evaluated a home network and ambient intelligence prototype for wellness management and home automation applications. The evaluation was based on interviews and a user trial at a simulated home environment. This paper describes users' attitudes towards ubiquitous computing technology at home, and especially what kind of applications they would prefer to use at home. We also aimed to gather qualitative information about what kind of user interfaces would be desired for using these applications. The study generated new ideas to develop the ubiquitous computing enabled home concept further.
