This work addresses the issue of designing for privacy in smart homes. We identify several principles to guide privacy management in smart homes, propose and analyze several general privacy management techniques, and evaluate existing privacy management efforts in ubiquitous computing. We conclude by explaining how existing work is not contextually expressive enough to give inhabitants the level of control they should have over their personal information. The contributions of this work are threefold: an increased understanding of the notions of privacy and designing for privacy within smart homes and the proposal of new solutions to handling privacy related issues within smart homes, and the facilitation of the acceptance of smart home technology into mainstream society.
