Home automation is the residential extension of building automation. It is automation of home systems and appliances, housework, or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), appliances, security locks on gates and doors and other systems, with the goal(s) of providing improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide enhanced quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.

The popularity of home automation has been increasing quickly in recent years due to much greater affordability and simplicity with Smartphone and tablet connectivity. The concept of the 'Internet of Things' has tied in closely with the popularization of home automation.

A home automation system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. The techniques employed in home automation include those in building automation as well as the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems, houseplant and yard watering, pet feeding, changing the ambiance for different events (such as dinners or parties), and the use of domestic robots. Devices may be connected through a computer network to allow control by a personal computer, and may allow remote access from the Internet. Through the integration of information technologies with the home environment, systems and appliances are able to communicate in an integrated manner, which results in convenience, energy efficiency and safety.

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

This iRAP report has been prepared to highlight the many new developments in home automation and to estimate the markets in this new emerging industry.

This, in turn, contributes to the determination of what kinds of strategic responses companies may adopt in order to compete in this dynamic market.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

The home automation market is growing fast. Market research forecasts that the number of connected devices and sensors in an average American home will increase from four today to sixteen in 2015. At that time, 13% of all U.S. households are forecast to have energy management systems installed, and nearly 20% are expected to have monitored security systems in place – up from 2% and 18% today, respectively. In the smart home of the future, these devices will be integrated into intelligent, interconnected and interoperable systems.

Several candidates are vying for leadership in introducing smart-home services to the mass market. Historically, connected home services were led by home automation system manufacturers and installation companies, but new contenders are emerging among the utility companies, telecom companies, home energy management providers, and even gaming companies.

In the last five years, many changes have occurred. The telecommunications sector has begun to address the smart home opportunity. Many of the early service launches have been based on fixed-line access, taking advantage of telcos’ existing base of home broadband gateways and IP TV set-top boxes to add home control and monitoring tools. Smart-home services have been dubbed the “fifth play,” added to telco service portfolios alongside voice, data, TV and mobile devices. Mobile operators, providing broadband connectivity to complement fixed broadband, will also be able to leverage existing networks to provide a home gateway to control smart-home devices. Therefore, iRAP felt a need to do a detailed technology update and analysis of this industry.

REPORT SUMMARY

Home automation (HA) has made good headway into commercial markets in the past few years and is still growing. Today, it is possible to control an entire “smart” home – audio, video, lights, thermostats, IP cameras, security systems and much more – with easy taps and gestures. It is possible to quickly browse movie, artwork, or music collections. Easy-to-use applications provide real-time, touch control of audiovisual systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more, from Android phone or iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or any other devices which can seamlessly communicate with a HA control system via 3G, GPRS, or EDGE cellular networks or Wi-Fi, to allow the convenience of remote use and control.

“Managed solutions” refer to standard HA products offered by broadband service operators. This category had the largest market share of the total market in 2013. It includes, besides traditional home security companies like The ADT Corporation, major telecom operators such as Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner Cable Enterprises LLC, Swisscom AG and Bell Aliant Inc. Cable operators such as Cablevision Systems Corporation, Bright House Networks and others have already made public announcements regarding HA services; some have begun initial rollouts, and many more will jump into the game this year. Manufacturers of HA products need cable and telephone lines to connect their automation systems, while cable and telecom companies sell services based on gear supplied by the industrial companies, so manufacturers as well as cable and telecom companies act as both partners and competitors.
