A smart home is referred to a residence or house that uses internet-connected devices to enable the remote monitoring and management of household appliances and systems, such as lighting, climate control, heating, and security.
Smart home technology is often referred to as home automation or domotics (Latin domus, meaning home). It provides homeowners security, comfort, convenience, and energy efficiency by allowing them to control smart devices, often by a smart home app on their smartphone or other networked devices.
Smart home systems are part of the internet of things, and the devices often operate together, sharing consumer usage data among themselves and automating actions based on the homeowners’ preferences.
Indians making smart choices?
In India, the sector is witnessing huge growth due to the entry of the tech-savvy homebuyers in urban markets. With home automation provided at affordable prices, the technology is expected to penetrate beyond the luxury market. As per a Statista report, the number of users of smart households is expected to reach 54 million by 2026 and market penetration is expected to hit 15.4 percent by 2026.
