Home automation technology represents the next level of automation, focusing mainly on residential sector, which, following the hospitality sector has the second-most demand in the automation industry. In most instances, comfort plays a major role in an end-user’s demand for home automation.
Since the real estate boom in India, new home buyers have started to opt for add-ons like automation in their buildings or houses. Indians are usually very conscious of energy costs, and modern home buyers are ready to spend on luxury, comfort, and security systems with automated control devices that can regulate utility services.
In the past, automation was mainly installed in commercial buildings and high-end apartments. Slowly, the concept of a smart home has percolated down to more modest, midsized apartments, as well.
As home automation systems become available at affordable prices, demand will increase for smart technologies; a more digital lifestyle per square foot will dominate future concepts of home.
