FutureFinders spots emerging market trends and the products on GlobalSources.com that will take these trends to hot viral levels.
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:
- Automation, one of the basics in a connected home
- Smart security and surveillance, which allow remote monitoring
- Smart lighting, with LED lamps at the forefront
Smart audio, specifically smart speakers, work like an assistant in controlling the different systems in the connected home. Smart speakers react to spoken commands, switching on or off various appliances, opening and closing curtains, doors and windows, and even search the Internet.
This smart revolution is not limited to standalone speakers. A report by Persistence Market Research said manufacturers are developing smart and networked speakers, driven by the integration of home audio systems with wearables.
The same report said multiroom audio systems, which play songs using an app, will open “huge opportunities” for home theater audio systems manufacturers that will contribute to the 5 percent CAGR forecast from 2017 to 2025.
