FutureFinders spots key emerging trends and the products on Global Sources that drive these trends.
The FutureFinders Smart Home episode looks at the smart gadgets boosting the “home IQ” of the present-day abode.
For this series, we will “build” a smart home by examining further several trends taking the smart movement by storm.
We’ve already taken a look at automation, practically one of the basics in a connected home. Today, we secure the smart home with intelligent cameras and surveillance solutions.
Trends point to complete security and surveillance solutions that allow homeowners to monitor their home and track different activities from practically anywhere. A recent GlobalSources.com article predicts product development in this segment to continue moving forward, as more developers build smart homes from the ground up and as home owners become increasingly concerned over security and safety.
Global Sources Verified Suppliers are focusing R&D on these factors, releasing a slew of fully integrated security solutions, standalone Wi-Fi cameras and other surveillance systems.
