The fantastic smart homes of the future are here…and they help solve the simple problems that every homeowner has. Home automation has grown exponential over the last decade, from simple light timers all the way up to self-managing security and HVAC systems. But why had home automation gotten so popular? Read on to find out more!
Homeowners Are Focused on Four Key Concepts
Icontrol Networks, Inc., recently released their 2015 State of the Smart Home Report. Icontrol Networks is most commonly known for major-installer based services such as XFINITY, Pulse, IntelligentHome, and Home Life. As such, they were well-equipped to ask their customers, “What makes home automation so popular?” The report reveals four key points to take note of:
Consumers believe that home automation allows for better home security. For the second year in a row, 90% of consumers surveyed in the report said that security was one of the top reasons to purchase a smart home system.
Home automation increases energy efficiency, in both the home and the home owner. 23% of consumers surveyed said that they were most excited about greater productivity and the ability to manage work-life balance. Energy-efficient technologies save you money on your bills and time you would otherwise spend adjusting the home’s environment.
Consumers are most interested in technology that automates itself. 60% of consumers surveyed said that they would want to see technologies that don’t have to be monitored constantly in order to work. Consumers prefer devices which use data, analytics and sensors to work on their own.
Ease-of-use is a bigger draw than advanced technology options. Not everyone wants to live the life of the Jetsons. Consumers want self-adjusting thermostat and automatic adjustable lighting, not texts from their refrigerator. The less complicated the technology is, the more likely a homeowner is to adopt it into their new smart-focused house.
