In 2015, market reports valued the “smart” home automation market at $4.4 billion. But by 2020, experts estimate that the smart home industry will be worth over $21 billion. A huge jump in just five years. But there’s more.
A 2016 study found that nearly half of Americans either already own or plan on installing smart home technology. And 70 percent of those who have this type of technology in their home said they’d be more likely to buy another smart home product.
Perhaps most telling is that 72 percent of homeowners aged 18 to 34 would actually pay more — thousands more — for smart home features.
Some of the most popular smart home features include:
- Smart security: Security has always been a selling feature, but smart home security include smart locks and alarm systems that connect to something every buyer already has: a smart phone.
- Smart lighting: Smart lighting is often seen as a security feature, but those who have it in their homes can attest to its value in everyday living. Many systems can wirelessly control lights with a single button touch. Users can create schedules and control their home’s lights from anywhere.
- Smart thermostats: Buyers can control their home’s temperature via their smartphone. These thermostats also learn when no one is home and adjust the temps accordingly, reducing energy bills.
- Smart smoke detectors: Most would agree that they’d like to know if a smoke detector goes off in their home while they’re away. Smart smoke detectors are designed to let homeowners know if this happens.
