Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as a convergence of multiple technologies that interconnect physical and virtual objects over a network to improve our quality of life. These services deal with numerous interactions between devices, each having its own functionality and user flows. A large emphasis has always been placed on the technical aspects of IoT but very little importance has been given to researching factors that could have a significant effect on a user’s intention to use and adopt these services. Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Value-based Adoption Model (VAM) are two of the most widely used models to discovering the potential user’s intention to use a new technology. This paper examines these models to provide insight into determining factors that directly affect IoT service adoption by users and applies it to developing a coherent and engaging user interface for an existing IoT system.
