Home automation named one of the most influential IoT techs in 2014

The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) is a nonprofit trade group dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship and sponsor to TiECON, the annual conference for entrepreneurs from technology companies, venture capital firms, and service providers, released an infographic that highlights industry insights and predictions on the Top 5 Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for 2014 (full infographic below).

According to the infographic, the Top 5 most influential IoT technologies this year are smartwatches, health and fitness tracking, connected retail, virtual and augmented reality, and the automated home.

The automated home market is expected to reach revenues of $35.6 million by 2016, reports TiE, as more consumers leverage technology to help them save on utility bills. A homeowner can expect to save up to 20 percent in their home costs per year, an average of about $1,154 annually.

One of the most widely adopted home automation systems available today is temperature control, with popular products including the Nest smart learning thermostat and Belkin’s WeMo line of home automation solutions.

Almost all installations of home technologies in new homes increased or held constant in 2013, indicating the built-in home technology market has a strong, stable foothold in the U.S. The 12th Annual State of the Builder Technology Market Study, was released today by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®. 

Installations of almost every home technology increased or held constant from 2012 to 2013. Structured wiring was the most common technology installed in 2013 (78 percent, an eight percent increase from 2012), followed by monitored security (47 percent, up three percent) and home theaters (32 percent, up five percent). Multi-room audio (21 percent), energy management (13 percent) and home automation (12 percent) all saw increases. A new addition to this year's study are stand-alone video surveillance systems (including pre-wire),which were installed in eight percent of new homes in 2013. 

The U.S. housing market continued to recover in 2013 and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) predicts there will be 1.3 million new home starts in 2014. In parallel with the housing recovery, built-in home technologies are expected to reach $2.3 billion in revenue in 2014, according to CEA's U.S. Consumer Electronics Sales and Forecast report.
