Smart home refers to a convenient home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere with an internet connection using a mobile or networked device. Malaysia is a promising area for the development of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and digitalization strategies especially smart home products. Nevertheless, the penetration level of this product is quite low. Hence, this study analyzed the determinants of user's intention to adopt smart home technology. Data from 334 respondents, which was collected through an online survey, were examined quantitatively. Results indicate that automation and attitude were positively linked to the user's intention to adopt the smart home, while there is no linked between security and smart home adoption intention. This study provides an insight associated with the diffusion of smart home technology in Malaysia. Furthermore, the findings can be used by the developer of smart home in crafting an impactful strategy to increase the user adoption of this product.
