The disadvantages and problems of selling this product is that it is expensive to purchase this kind of product. Smart home products are not suitable for everyone. Some people can afford to buy smart home products, but it doesn’t mean that it will not use up their money. They can buy the products one after another and it doesn’t seem like spending too much but by the time there’s a new invented smart home system that they want, they will probably prefer to spend on this product than the previous one. The sensor is a costly product considering when determining or evaluating smaller areas. Besides that, it is sensitive to presence such as it can sense not only the user but anyone who is in the room and for those who raise pets at home, once the sensor sense them it will automatically connect all the devices in the house. This can cause a waste of electricity and have to pay more than usual. This sensor needs a certain kind of drill to evaluate images that’s why it considered pricy to use sensor in the long run due to it needed extra training to be approved by the users. This sensor needs to rely on internet connection. If the internet is not strong enough it will not work on the user. Besides that, RoomMe is a wireless signal. Some electronic devises like smartphones and laptops might interrupt the connection and cause the sensor not to function properly
