Smart home appliances are equipment programmed to run from a central system that can be remotely controlled by users, often by a mobile app. Base on the technology acceptance model (TAM), this study explores the impact of innovation adoption (IA) and computer self-efficacy (SE) of smart home appliances on behavioral intention (BI). Users and potential users of smart home appliances are the survey respondents of this study. By the internet questionnaires, 282 out of 326 valid respondents are gathered, from June to August in 2019. The results indicate that innovation adoption and computer self-efficacy exhibited significantly positive effects on perceived ease of use (PEU) and perceived usefulness (PU). PEU and PU positively affect attitude (AT) and AT positively affect BI significantly.
