What is Home Automation?
Simply put, home automation is when various smart equipment, gadgets and devices at home are controlled using an interface through voice commands, or a mobile app. In some cases, products can even learn your daily routines and act accordingly without any manual intervention.
Through home automation, users can control a wide variety of devices ranging from temperature, cctv cameras, door locks, fire alarm systems, to even entertainment systems.
The Future of Home Automation in India
Suppose it’s 8 o'clock in the morning. You go about your usual morning routine, and it’s quite chilly. Your air-conditioning senses the ambient temperature of the room and increases the temperature of the room, your door lock sensor recognizes any visitors, and your geyser activates automatically because it knows how much you love your morning showers.
This is not a fantasy, this is an alliance between humans and machines. The future of living is will be enabled by home automation.
It is estimated that by 2024, the size of the home automation market will cross at least INR 55,000 crore.
Home automation is not just limited to metro cities but also has potential in tier II and tier III cities too, especially since home automation is quite attractive for everyday use-cases such as your lighting control or security needs.
In the Indian market, the driving force for the home automation market is the growing internet penetration, network infrastructure upgrades, affordable home automation products, and an increase in disposable income with the rise of the technology sector.
