Foresee the future, what are the trends of smart home in 2019?


In 2015, the global smart home market reached $48.5 billion.


In 2018, the global smart home market is expected to reach $71 billion.


In an era of increasing emphasis on personal experience, smart homes have become a must-have for homes, and traditional homes have been unable to meet the needs of contemporary young people for quality of life. Modern science and technology promotes the development of the times and changes the habits of human life and consumption to a certain extent. With the emergence of new products, there will be many new development trends in the smart home market.

Trend 1: Smart Furniture

At present, most people own smart home products that are accessories such as smart speakers and smart cameras. However, analysts believe that in the near future, it will be common for us to see the overall furniture with intelligent functions. In fact, some companies in the UK have begun offering tables such as built-in wireless phone chargers, or sofas with speakers, and other furniture with built-in Apple products and applications.


Trend 2: Smart Garage Door

Smart locks have been widely used in people's homes and gates. However, for one of the most commonly used garage doors for homeowners, the current smart lock is not yet applicable.

But don't worry, the new technology is making the original basic garage door opener a thing of the past. You may be surprised to find that smart garage control has emerged in 2014, but it has only recently been recognized by consumers.

The smart garage door allows you to check the status of the garage door via your smartphone and open or close the garage door. Don't worry about forgetting to close the garage door.

Trend 3: Smart Bathroom Technology

We already have a lot of smart products in the kitchen and bedroom, and the manufacturer will definitely not ignore the bathroom. This is where we start a new day after getting up every day, and some smart gadgets can make people happy to start their day.

The smart shower can set the temperature and water volume as needed, and even set the lights and music individually. Plus a mirror with voice-activated lighting makes it easier to apply.


Trend 4: Smart Doorbell

A survey of 1,000 American adults found that for those with the highest incomes, the primary task of smart homes is security. However, people at other income levels may become more interested in home security devices, especially nowadays.

Many companies are making cameras with AI chips that intelligently analyze the captured content.

In addition, because Amazon acquired the smart doorbell brand Ring, it will make smart security technology more compatible with Alexa applications. Moreover, people will find this much easier than investing in advanced security equipment.


Trend 5: Rental apartments will be equipped with smart homes

Many property managers often promote the superior facilities of their apartment buildings, such as gyms, swimming pools, and even free gifts to attract tenants.

According to some surveys, the deployment of smart devices in rental housing may bring better results to the owners, because tenants prefer smart technology compared to traditional facilities. Among the most popular features are security surveillance cameras, smart thermostats and keyless entry systems.

The survey also found that respondents were not loyal to specific smart home brands, which offered more freedom when choosing smart products for the property. In addition, 47% of respondents said they would be willing to pay $20 more per month if their apartment had smart technology.


Trend 6: Cross-platform and platform-independent technology

Dan Roberts is the co-founder of Scout, which provides a smart home security system that can be installed independently. They believe that in the next decade, people will see smart home technology working on multiple platforms at the same time, so that it can be more seamlessly integrated into people's daily lives.

But before that, people will see smart devices that don't need to use smartphone apps or electronic interfaces to control them.


Trend 7: Smart Home Wearables

People are already familiar with sensors that monitor sleep habits and step counters, and soon people can use wearable devices to control smart home devices.

In addition to the specialized wearable devices that control smart home devices, people also expect their own wearable devices to interact with smart home products.


The development of the smart home market is still strong, and more innovation and exploration are needed. It is also thanks to these smart devices that the dreams of high-tech family life in science fiction have entered our lives.
