Rising demand for energy-efficient solutions to drive the smart home market

Cloud-based services help lower energy consumption to a great extent. Consumers are now aware of the importance of saving energy and are opting for more energy-efficient systems and solutions for their homes. Smart home systems allow the consumer to control everything that is connected to their network. For instance, consumers can decrease usage of energy by means of temperature settings and schedules of programmable thermostats. However, consumers frequently struggle to efficiently program thermostats. Smart thermostats that are linked to home Wi-Fi networks come with apps that are easy to use and with added remote control convenience. In a smart home system, lights in a smart home can be turned on and off automatically, with the help of occupancy sensors. A smart home system helps in monitoring the energy usage of each and every appliance in a home. Moreover, smart home controllers help schedule operations of high-power-consuming appliances.
