Smart home automation isn’t some passing trend. Not only is the market growing, consumer interest is through the roof. According to a November 2022 press release by Financialnewsmedia.com, consumer demand for home automation systems controls and monitors has been rising in recent years. It’s also projected to continue to grow at a significant pace for years to come.
What is smart home automation
Smart home innovation devices, such as smart thermostats, plugs, appliances, and others, offer consumers increased convenience, safety, energy efficiency and utility savings. In addition to allowing homeowners to turn devices on and off from their handheld device, from anywhere that they have a cell phone signal, when wired correctly, smart devices can also perform complex functions, such as lighting an evacuation pathway in the event of a fire.
Top devices for 2023
- Security systems: Perhaps not surprisingly, smart security systems are still a hot-ticket item. When it comes to choosing a smart security system you have numerous options to choose from, such as doorbell systems that stream video of whoever is outside to your phone screen, to systems that alert homeowners when they detect motion inside (or outside) the home.
- Smart thermostats: These items aren’t just fun and techy, they can potentially save you big bucks on your utility bills. How many snowbirds do you know who’ve come to SWFL for a few weeks only to realize they left their thermostat set to 70 degrees? How many times have you gone on vacation wondering “did I turn the AC down before I left?” With a smart thermostat, you no longer need to have concerns. You can view and adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere your cell phone has a signal.
- Voice assistants: If you plan to fully wire your home, consider investing in a smart hub that can be connected to all of your devices. Imagine being able to start your washing machine, turn the oven on, and learn whether you need to buy milk, eggs, or juice, without ever needing to leave your favorite reading nook on the couch.
