Tech gurus estimate that there will be about 500 ‘connected’ devices in the average U.S. home by 2020. In fact, there are probably more smart tech devices floating around your house than you might think, namely smart phones, iPads, iPods, computers, and video game systems. But more of this connected technology is heading our way!
In this article, we’ll highlight a few of the latest advances in Smart Technology and throw out a few fun holiday gift ideas. Tis the season!
Trends in the Smart Tech Market
Most feel like the home automation industry is right on the cusp of taking off, but that there are a few things holding it back. Namely, it’s expensive, complicated, and nothing seems to integrate. Check out this chart from Business Insider that shows expected growth in smart home technology.
Aside from the mobile phone, many people don’t see the value in smart appliances. Why do I need a smart fridge, toaster, trashcan, etc.? While some markets are struggling to sell smart tech equipment, the security industry is having tremendous success and are doing so at surprisingly affordable rates.
