This paper surveys recent Internet of Things (IoT) related HCI literature, and examines it in light of a comprehensive framework by Atzori et al. (2010). Mapping HCI literature to this framework helped us understand the extent and the focus of IoT related HCI efforts, including a lack of HCI engagement with deeper human-centred perspectives of the IoT. It also revealed HCI considerations for the IoT which we added to the framework. This extended the framework to a tool for an HCI audience that can be used for 'thinking through' the design of IoT technologies. We close the paper by demonstrating how this tool has been found useful in an IoT research project and at the same time illustrating our approach in how to engage more deeply with humancentred concerns.
