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.
