Ageing-in- place for older people could be more feasible with the support of smart home technology. Ageing in-place may maximize the independence of older adults and enhance their well-being and quality of life, while decreasing the financial burden of residential care costs, and addressing workforce shortages. However, the uptake of smart home technology is very low among older adults. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to explore factors influencing community-dwelling older adults’ readiness to adopt smart home technology.
