A convenience sampling technique was used to select respondents among home owners in Selangor, Malaysia. This quantitative approach employ structured questionnaire developed from previous research. Out of 400 questionnaires distributed, only 316 questionnaires are usable for analysis. The Pearson Correlation and Multiple Regression analysis were conducted using the SPSS Version 23.0 to analyse the data. Overall, the findings revealed that perceived benefits has positive and significant relationship to intention to adopt Smart home technology. However, perceived risk has no significant relationship to intention to adopt smart home technology.
