A smart home refers to a convenient home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere with an internet connection using a mobile or other networked device. Devices in a smart home are interconnected through the internet, allowing the user to control functions such as security access to the home, temperature, lighting, and a home theater remotely. A smart home’s devices are connected with each other and can be accessed through one central point—a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or game console. Door locks, televisions, thermostats, home monitors, cameras, lights, and even appliances such as the refrigerator can be controlled through one home automation system. The system is installed on a mobile or other networked device, and the user can create time schedules for certain changes to take effect.
A home security system is a network of electronic devices working together to secure the residential environment from burglars and potential home intruders as well as from other emergency situations. Home security can be ensured through several monitoring and detection systems—including fire protection, access control, and video surveillance.
The early 1900s witnessed the industrial revolution, which paved the way for the introduction of the first home appliances. During the 1930s, inventors turned their attention to home automation technologies, but the idea didn’t materialize until 1966, when the Echo IV, the first smart automation system, was developed. The development of the microcontroller in 1971 resulted in price reductions for electronic devices, making the technologies more accessible. In 1991, a concept called “gerontechnology” was introduced, which combined gerontology with technology aimed at making the lives of senior citizens easier. Several new technologies were introduced in this sector during the 1990s. The early 2000s were marked by the rapid increase in the popularity of smart home technology. Different technologies emerged and were slowly integrated into the homes. Smart homes started to become affordable and therefore viable technologies for many consumers.

Smart Home Security Growth is driven by technological developments and increased consumer awareness. The functionalities such as advanced software, third-party monitoring and analytics services, and wireless communication - are propelling the demand for the integrated home security systems. The successful integration of the IoT network, which facilitates remote, real-time, and automated monitoring of the home environment, leads to the development of smart homes. Thus, the wireless technology-enabled security systems are among the major advancements in the field of home security solutions and IoT, which is widely preferred by the homeowners to ensure effective protection. The wireless access to several security options - such as access control, and fire and gas detection systems - offers flexibility, convenience, and assurance to consumers. Therefore, wireless control over smart home devices increases the consumers’ likelihood of purchasing these devices. Owing to the increasing urbanization, cities have started growing vertically, leading to the growth in the number of residential apartments and complexes. People in cities prefer condominiums and apartments owing to the integrated security and amenities within optimized prices. Therefore, providing a high level of security, while managing a large number of households, becomes necessary for the society builders and management bodies.
The penetration of home security systems is still low, and the customers from economically developing countries prefer deploying DIY systems for the security within a budget. Although the systems do not provide a connection with a professional monitoring station, the customers can remotely monitor the home using their smartphones. Therefore, with the increasing penetration of home security systems, the DIY systems become an attractive alternative for newer customers with average disposable incomes.
Smart Home Security is a Growing market dominated by integrated appliances. Integrated Appliances market share was 90% of the Smart Home Security market in 2017 by Access Technology. One of the biggest benefits of a smart home security system is that it can be integrated directly into other smart home features. Stand-Alone Appliances market share was 10% of the Smart Home Security market in 2017. These solutions focus on only one security device, such as security cameras, door and window sensors, motion sensors, key fobs, etc.
