The year may be coming to a close, but the smart home industry is still going strong. In fact, it is projected that by 2021, 28% of homes will be considered “smart”. As the market grows, we also anticipate it to evolve. Here are 5 trends we expect to see for smart homes in 2020.
Integrated Control Systems
It’s no secret that there are a lot of options our there for someone looking to install a home automation system. As the industry continues to grow, one thing is clear – completely integrated control systems are the way of the future.
Smart home technology is always changing. As the technology progresses, users are turning to platforms that can manage it all. Instead of a new system for each automation, trust a system like Control4 to manage your entire home, from home theaters, to music, to outdoor patio shades and even appliances.
Smart Building Materials
Imagine getting notified when there was a change in the structural integrity of your home’s foundation or learning about a termite infestation before it spreads to your entire house. Building materials are becoming more sophisticated and soon smart building materials will be an important part of new home builds. This will allow homeowners to know about problems as soon as they happen (instead of when it’s too late to do anything).
Smart home security will evolve in two separate ways. The technology will continue to progress to provide enhanced security for homeowners from physical threats. Smart home users will rest confident that their family is safe on their property.
There will also be trends to improve the virtual security of smart home users. The industry will continue to vigilantly protect the networks that run smart homes to keep them safe from hackers and people with ill intent.
Can you list off everything you have in your fridge? Do you know if you’re missing some key ingredients for the meal you’re planning tomorrow? Your smart kitchen could know all of this! But smart furniture doesn’t just stop in the kitchen – smart beds are hitting the market that can track and improve your sleep.
As the industry progresses, we expect your home will be connected from canned goods to comforters.
It’s no secret that AR is making a huge mark on the tech industry. Some projections have the Augmented Reality market reaching $149 billion by 2025. As AR continues to boom, we expect to see it take huge strides in the smart home market.
Augmented reality could change the way we enjoy television, watching cooking tutorials or talk to family members that live far away.
