I have serious doubts about such things. I mean, the folks you live with are smart, but do you want them controlling your house based on what they think you might want at any given moment? There's certainly a place for artificial intelligence. But folks have to accept that anything making non-programmed autonomous decisions will sometimes make the wrong decision. Sometimes it'll be an annoying wrong decision that you have to spend time you don't have undoing, and sometimes that might be a really bad wrong decision like opening the blinds when you are the significant other are having sexy time.

And even I, a person who makes autistic people seem wildly spontaneous, just wouldn't want something trying to guess what i want based on past activity.

I would want to be prompted. "I see you turn the lights on everyday at 4:30 on Monday and Wednesday, would you like to schedule and event for that?"

But that would sort of require positive identification of who is doing that. With more than one person in the home it would seem like all the actions of everyone would look like one cumulative single person. And it would let children effectively set such decisions since it wouldn't know who its talking to when it made such a prompt.

That's what the user accounts and different security levels are for.

But, if we are talking doing this via voice, it can't have different user accounts unless it has voice based identification, and no one has reliable voice based identification. If it involves speaking some sort of password or something, that's not of much use since you'd have to ask everyone to leave the room while you did it.

I can see how voice would be problematic. Either some sort of notification and then you have to go to the admin interface or a text/chat feature.
