Home automation, also referred as smart home, is the extension of building automation system in residential property. Home automation comprises automation and control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) and security. It also involves control and automation of various home appliances and equipment such as refrigerators, ovens, dryers, washing machines and others. This is achieved by the use of intelligent terminals for controlling various equipment and appliances.
The rising concern of people towards security and protection against theft and increasing need for energy-saving along with increasing efficiency of various domestic appliances are the key factors driving the adoption of home automation, globally. Other factors attributed to the growth of market includes the essential growth and development in IoT applications, constant development of product portfolios for home automation, rising significance of remote monitoring and decreasing cost of home automation devices and systems. The home automation systems are gaining importance among various enterprises with the concern of protecting their commercial assets that include hardware infrastructures, buildings and others. However, home automation products are generally taken as simplifying daily activities instead of solving energy-efficiency problems. Also, many people are still not aware of the advantages delivered by home automation systems. Thus, these factors are hampering the growth of home automation market.
The rise in the adoption of smart handy devices for example, smart phones and tablets and their improved Internet connectivity has resulted to growth in the usage of these systems. Also, rapid development in wireless technology coupled with decreasing prices of home automation systems is also driving the market growth. Various devices in home automation that facilitates in providing home security includes video surveillance, intrusion detection system, monitor sensors, alarms and bit screens. Home automation products are generally considered as luxury services due to their high prices.
The home automation market is bifurcated by product, networking technology, type and geography. The product segment is classified into lighting control, security & access control, HVAC control, entertainment control and others. On the basis of networking technology, the market is segmented into wireless home automation systems, wired computing network home automation systems, home automation systems, and power-line home automation systems. The type segment is bifurcated into luxury, mainstream home automation systems, managed home automation services and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home automations system. Geographically, the market is bifurcated into Europe, Latin America, North America, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific.
The lighting control segment is projected to grow at a high rate in the coming years since it results in reducing the power consumption. Also, the rising environmental concerns and increased awareness for home automation system are the factors responsible for the surge in market growth. North America is leading the market for home automation followed by Europe. The growth in North America is due to the region’s rapid adoption of technology and increased awareness towards power-saving. Additionally, the spending capacity of people for luxury services is also influencing the home automation market in this region. Whereas, the growth in Europe is attributed to the stringent regulations by European government for energy conservation. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience high growth in coming years owing to the rising number of construction of new residential projects. Also, countries such as China, Japan and South Korea are experiencing a substantial demand for home automation systems thus, propelling the market growth in Asia-Pacific.

Introduction The crucial elements of headlamps are lens, reflector, and bulb. Bulb is located in the focal point of a parabolic reflector by means of standard holders fixed on the ceasing of headlamp assembly. The headlamp reflector directs the random light rays of light bulb into a concentrated beam of light. It consists of a layer of sliver, chrome, or aluminum deposited on a
Introduction TBR tires, known as truck and bus radial, is normally designed for all vehicles those are more than 21 feet in length and weigh over 10,000 lbs gross vehicle weight and are not licensed as a recreational vehicle. TBR tires are primarily designed for the highway system due to features such as enhanced driving comfort because of adaptable sidewalls, less heat created
Introduction Power electronics is a broad term given to a collection of solid-state devices such as diode, silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR), thyristors, gate turn-off thyristors, Power MOSFET and many more used for control and conversion of electric power. They plays a major role in automotive in controlling automotive electronics. Automotive electronics is an advanced term de
