Home Technology for Women?

I saw this article today talking about technology that could be implemented in the home:

It talks about lighting, security, media, appliance monitoring, and other solutions for the home. All of this sounds good, but they frame it in a way that makes it sound like this is mainly made for women. I’d be interested to know how they know that these ideas are influenced by what women want, and if this is true, how to design to better meet their needs. I think of technology being sort of a male-dominated field, so it would be interested to see if there is a design shift if it turns out that women really are becoming the “key influencers.”
