Global Home Automation Sensors Market: Overview 

Home automation is an innovative idea of building automation for a home, more precisely smart home. A home automation system has the ability to control climate, appliances, and entertainment systems. This system also includes home security such as alarm systems and access control. Smart home devices are connected with the internet, which are important constituents of the Internet of Things or IoT. Sensors are considered as the foundation stone of any home automation system. 

Property damage can destroy people’s lives through lightening, forces of fire, or extreme weather events such as tornadoes and hurricanes. Home automation sensors helps in detecting sudden abnormalities inside and outside of the home and protect people’s lives. These sensors also monitors activity, activates/deactivates lights and other home appliances automatically, and reacts to sudden environmental changes. Home automation sensors collect information in the form of commands and programs. Such advantages are fueling the demand in the global home automation sensors market. 

The most common sensors used in smart home automation system are light sensors, temperature sensors, motion sensors, occupancy sensors, and fire sensors. Apart from these basic smart home sensors, there are several other sensors in the market such as leak/moisture detection sensors, window and door open and close sensors, video doorbell sensors, and smart thermostat. The main reason behind integrating such sensors in smart homes is to make life easier. Along with these, rapid penetration of Internet of Things, technological advancements, people inclination towards high standards of living, and rising disposable income and luxurious lifestyle are also the factors driving the global home automation sensors market.v

Home Automation Sensors are connected to a home in order to make the home smart by collecting information in the form of programs and commands. Nowadays, automation is gaining high traction in domestic applications involving security systems and home appliances. In compliance with Internet of Things (IoT), several home appliances are attributed with various sensors to perform certain tasks as programmed or with artificial intelligence. Sensors such as light sensors, motion sensors, proximity (presence) sensors, infrared sensors, voice detectors and others are used to control indoor lights, doors or windows, security cameras, television, temperature (HVAC) and other appliances. These sensors are primarily intended to reduce power consumption and increase reliability of the systems, also, these automation features help to build superior aesthetic appearance.

Home Automation Sensors Market: Dynamics

The global home automation sensors market is highly dependent on the adoption of automation systems in domestic applications. The rapid growth in technology has enabled manufacturers to develop sophisticated systems with smart sensors, which is observed as emerging USP for the products and is estimated to gain significant growth over the forecast period. Also, growing disposable income among consumers is expected to propel the growth of global home automation sensors market. Furthermore, growing fascination for high living standards among the urban population is estimated to be the other major factor escalating the growth of global home automation sensors market.

On the other side, the incorporation of sensors involves higher technological complexity as compared to conventional systems, which ultimately increases the cost of manufacturing of home automation systems. Also, systems with sensors require high maintenance and suitable environmental condition in order to work effectively. Despite decent advantages of home automation sensors, high cost and maintenance are expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period. Also, as most of these systems are connected directly through a command unit or controller, which generally will be connected to a remote station or cloud storage, impinges customer’s mind about the hacking or malfunctioning of the system, which can lead to full access to the house, thereby raising security concerns.

Home Automation Sensors Market: Segmentation
