50 Million Wireless Smart Homes and Buildings by 2018
Wireless sensor network technologies such as ZigBee, will enable 50 million smart homes and buildings worldwide by 2018, according to recent research by ON World. Annual shipments of WSN devices for smart homes and buildings will increase by more than 600% the next five years. The top three markets are Energy Management: ZigBee and WiFi will make up two-thirds of the global WSN chipset shipments for home and building energy management; Smart Lighting: Annual revenues for wireless smart lighting in residential and commercial buildings will reach $2 billion in 2017 up from under $300 million in 2012. ZigBee will be the dominant wireless smart lighting technology over the next five years and make up over half of the WSN shipments for residential and commercial applications at this time. Safety & Security: Fifty-three percent (53%) of the respondents with a professional security monitoring service indicate they would pay $20 or more per month for a home control and automation service compared with 35% with a cable TV service.
