The Internet of Things (IoT) is currently experiencing a lag in consumer adoption potentially due to the industry led technology push with little consideration of consumer needs. This research aimed to assess current consumer awareness and adoption whilst in addition analysing future interest in IoT products or services and the barriers preventing adoption. Initial research involved a literature review of concept origins, technology, applications, data management, and standards for the IoT. Additional research was undertaken using a mixed methodology approach comprising of semistructured informal interviews and a structured online questionnaire survey both performed using members of the general public. The results revealed a current overall poor awareness and adoption of IoT products and services, however, a significant interest in future adoption. Various communication and technical barriers were also identified preventing current interest from actual adoption. The research discusses key insights from data collection which could aid in the removal of observed barriers. These insights involved increased consumer education, development of greater product benefit, and the introduction of standards to ensure interoperability. Application of these research findings could help enable increased widespread adoption of IoT products and service.
