The smart-home tag is by far the biggest on the site, with 62 questions (about 19% of all questions) tagged with it.
However, as pointed out by dsample in this answer, it's quite a broad tag. As far as I can tell, it just says "this question is about IoT in a home environment", so it doesn't really convey a lot of information.
It also doesn't match up with any of the tags used on other Stack Exchange sites:
- [iot] on Engineering
- [home-automation] on Home Improvement
Note: iot is not valid for this site, and is blacklisted because the whole site is about IoT.
Could we improve this tag to make it more useful? We could consider:
synonymising home-automation with smart-home and then leave it as it is.
burninating smart-home and using more specific tags
narrowing down smart-home to be used for a specific purpose rather than just anything in a home
doing nothing at all.
