A true SmartDwelling is a completely different thing from a Smart House. The Smart House makes the shell (house) smart so the humans dwelling inside can be stupid if they like. A Smart Dwelling, OTOH, makes the acts of dwelling smarter, which engages the humans in those acts. A SmartDwelling requires those dwelling inside the shell to do smart things, like closing heavy curtains on a cold night, throwing open the windows on a spring morning, or closing the shutters in advance of a storm. A SmartDwelling makes those dwelling there smarter.
