Right now the technology necessary to get all of your appliances communicating with one another for energy conservation is cost-prohibitive for most people. "Retrofitting a house with the latest smart meters, smart monitors and energy-efficient "green" technologies can cost $10,000 or more." It won't always be this way. As the technology becomes more popular and easier to produce it will become more affordable for everyone. The second reason is because new homes are a small part of the market. Retrofitting an old place to make a modern home is more expensive than creating a smart house from scratch so the majority of the modern homes today are brand new construction homes. However these make up only a small percentage of the house sales market. And the last reason is “confusing” technology. In order for the average homeowner to adopt smart technology it needs to be super simple, user-friendly and intuitive to use. Right now some of the smart home technology is more advanced and people are intimidated by it. As we get more and more used to using it this problem will go away and smart homes will become the norm.
