Report Measures Home Automation Adoption at 15% of U.S. Internet Households

Carl Weinschenk for Telecompetitor:  The percentage of connected homes in the U.S. that own a home automation device is growing fast, according to the NPD Group. Researchers measured home automation adoption at 15% of U.S. internet households as of April 2017 — up from 10% a year earlier.

“The growth we are seeing in the number of owner homes is an indication that a broader field of available products, wider distribution, and greater awareness are actually adding users,” Ben Arnold, the executive director of industry analyst for the firm said in a press release.

The biggest slice of the sector is security and monitoring devices. Video doorbells (123% growth this year compared to the similar period of 2016) and smart lighting (83% growth) are making their impact felt. System controllers, power and sensors, home automation kits and smart entry showed similar growth.  Full Article:
