The growing need for high-performing solutions for domestic applications in areas of safety, lighting, energy, and entertainment have propelled the growth of the global home automation market. Increasing usage of smartphones and other handheld devices and growing internet penetration have added to the convenience of installing home automation across newer construction projects. While safety and security have emerged as the primary applications for home automation, energy-conscious consumers are opting for home automation to implement better energy management solutions. Advancements in technology and consumer awareness are playing a crucial role in development of the global home automation market.
Recently, the global home automation market has witnessed a number of key players introducing their advanced home automation solutions. For example, Samsung’s SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit offers integration with devices by other manufacturers. For automating a switch, the solution offers integration with smartbulbs from Philips, Osram, Belkin, Sylvania, and others. To offer temperature control and monitoring for smoke and carbon-dioxide, the solution integrates with devices manufactured by Honeywell and Nest. Additional sensors such as water leak sensor and presence detectors are also included in the kit to cater to those customers as well who do not have a smartphone.
A mobile app-based smarthome automation system has been introduced by Carrier. It enables home owners to easily connect with the most important systems in their homes such as safety and security, and heating and cooling. Once installed, users can manage connected devices, remotely manage access from the system’s app, and view live video of their homes with the help of connected cameras. Further, the Cor home automation system can connect and automate over 64 sensors. Introduction of these latest and advanced home automation systems are expected to boost the growth of the global home automation market.
