Consumers are expecting a future in which home automation plays a huge part- and the most important parts of that are ease of use and convenience.
That's according to a survey released this week, commissioned by Savant and conducted by GfK Custom Research.
According to the survey, more than half of consumers see home automation becoming an everybody future within ten years:
The survey further reveals that control/ease of use (69 percent) and convenience (58 percent) are the most important features for consumers when purchasing a new technology. Cost savings (41 percent) and safety and security (35 percent) were cited as the two primary considerations among consumers for the adoption of smart home automation systems.
“Consumers have spoken and want convenience and ease of use from their smart home technology," CEO William Lynch said as part of the announcement.
“For almost 10 years now, people with Savant Homes have seen how much easier automation makes their lives, and we are committed to bringing this experience to more and more homeowners.”
