Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around for many years and plays a vital role in developing automatic systems that require decision using a data- or model-driven approach. Smart homes are one such system; in them, AI is used to recognize user activities, which is a fundamental task in smart home system design.There are many approaches to this challenge, but data-driven activity recognition approaches are currently perceived the most promising to address the sensor selection uncertainty problem. However, a smart home using a data-driven approach exclusively cannot immediately provide its new occupant with the expected functionality, which has reduced the popularity of the datadriven approach. This paper proposes an approach to develop an integrated personalized system using a user-centric approach comprising survey, simulation, activity recognition and transfer learning. This system will optimize the behaviour of the house using information from the user’s experience and provide required services. The proposed approach has been implemented in a smart home and validated with actual users. The validation results indicate that users benefited from smart features as soon as they move into the new home
