1 in 3 Consumers Likely to Use Smart Home Solutions by 2018

ON World’s recently completed survey with 1,000 consumers found that within the next three years 1 in 3 will likely use smart home sensing solutions such as smart lighting, energy management, safety and security.

San Diego, CA August 31, 2015— One in three U.S. online adults will adopt a smart home sensing system within the next three years, according to global technology research firm ON World.  The primary adoption drivers are safety and security followed by energy savings and remote web access.  However, smart LED light bulbs are the most likely products that consumers plan to purchase within the next two years.
“Smart LED light bulbs will be one of the fastest growing smart home products over the next five years,” said Mareca Hatler ON World’s research director.  “With low-cost cloud platforms and smart bulbs available for under $10, cost is no longer a barrier and consumers are demanding simple ways to integrate wireless lighting with other smart home applications.”

ON World’s August 2015 survey with 1,000 US online adults found that 30% are planning to purchase a smart home sensing system within the next three years and 1 in 5 will own a smart home sensing system within the next 24 months.  Smart LED light bulbs are planned by over half of likely smart home adopters and the majority of respondents would like to integrate smart lighting with at least one other application.  For those that want to integrate smart lighting with at least one other application, smart thermostats are the most popular, followed by a security system and smart door locks, smart appliances and smart sprinklers.

ON World projects that 133 million smart home wireless lighting products will be shipped worldwide in 2019.
