The increasing attention for energy efficiency in buildings stimulates the expansion of "Smart buildings". In offices and homes, building automation systems are suited to individuals, foresighting their needs. Occupants' compliance is a fundamental requirement for a successful adoption of building automation systems. An important warning regards that such "smart behaviour" of the building should match with the occupants' satisfaction and their feeling of controlling the living environments. A balance between energy efficiency and occupants' needs is required. This paper aims at providing insight on the concept of "Smart Home" considering the adaptive actions performed by occupants to restore their wellbeing.
