Home Automation: Solutions and Suppliers 201007 Mar 2011 • by Natalie Aster
Home Automation is the automatic control of a home’s electronic systems, such as security, heating and air conditioning, entertainment, and lighting. A home automation system is one in which these systems are integrated into one, easy-to-use system. The purpose of a home automation system is to enable residents to perform normal daily tasks in a simpler manner. A home automation system will use scenes, off-site control, scheduling, and reactive events to automate the home’s electronics systems.
Home Automation can add security sensors for windows, doors, motion, glass break, and smoke can provide critical security information about the home either at home or away. In addition to securing the home, a security system provides information to the home automation system used for tracking homeowner habits and initiating actions. For example, the home automation system can activate lighting scenes based on security system modes away, night, or home. Pathways can be illuminated based on a garage door opening at night, signaling the return of the homeowner.

Report Sample Abstract
In 2009, the Home Automation market suffered from the same economic conditions as most industries in America. According to CE Pro’s annual State of the Industry Report, home technology integration companies saw a 51% drop in revenue…
Home automation manufacturing, along with many other segments, has seen a decline over the past two years (7.8% down in 2009 alone). However, according to survey results of Consumer Electronics Association manufacturers, the industry expects growth in 2010, reaching over $165 billion in sales. Additionally, other indicators, such as Luxury Goods and Computers & Electronics are showing promise of a rebound.
Highlights from the CEA’s U.S. Consumer Electronics Sales and Forecast 2006-1010 report:
- The 2009 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas had a record number of new exhibitors (330) displaying new technologies;
- Blu-ray player sales rose 155% in 2009 and are expected to remain strong in 2010;
- Unit sales of television are expected to increase to 37 million in 2010, with revenue of $22 billion;
In analyzing the health of the home automation manufacturing market, the following indicators are used:
- Economic Indicators (Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Residential Construction, Mortgage Rates);
- Industries (Luxury Goods, Construction, Computers and Electronics);
Beginning in early 2010, Real GDP, Real Disposable Income, and Consumer Prices are all expected to increase. When those numbers are combined with the projected increase in Residential Construction spending and relatively low interest rates, the Home Automation industry will likely see a return to healthy revenue increases.
