The technology has evolved a lot in the last decade and this has enabled a lot of devices to be controlled by just one device. Various devices like CCTV cameras, lighting, AC, TV, washing machine, etc. can be controlled by either a remote or a smartphone or tablet. These devices can be switched on or off from a different location provided the device controlling gets a signal. This can help in energy conservation when people often forget to switch off lights or some devices while leaving the house. As the CCTV footage can be seen anywhere, it gives the homeowners a sense of security leaving the house closed for a few days and even the alarm systems placed in the house can be controlled remotely if any burglary or theft is taking place in the house.
This increase in the use of home automation is because of the increase in the use of smartphones and tablets. As these devices are portable and use modern technology that can interact with other devices, installation of smart homes has increased. Technologies like bluetooth, GSM, Zigbee, wi-fi or RFID can be used to send the signals to control the devices. It is easy to install these systems in a house which is being built, rather than retrofitting it in older houses. Architects these days are taking this concept into consideration for the houses of the future.
There are some constraints for the market like the initial cost of installation of different equipment used in smart homes is high.
