The successful automation of a smart home relies on the ability of the smart home control system to organize, process, and analyze different sources of information, according to several criteria. Because of variety of key design criteria that every smart home of the future should meet, the main challenge is the trade-off between them in uncertain environment. In this paper, a problem of smart home design has been solved using the methodology based on multiplicative form of multi-attribute

The aggregation of different criteria has been performed through their numerical convolution, unlike usual approach of pairwise comparison, allowing only the additive form of aggregation of individual criteria. The methodology is illustrated on the smart home controller parameter setting.
