In this dilemma, the smart home is a family home. It has an air conditioning system and it regularly checks air quality and makes sure there are no risks of carbon monoxide poisoning or similar in the home. One day the system detects clear signs of the smokable drug, marijuana, in one of the teenager’s room. The system checks against the local legal system and determines that possession of marijuana is illegal in this jurisdiction. The smart home has then three choices: Should the house a) do nothing, b) alert the adults and let them handle the situation or c) alert the local police.
