IoT is a lot more pervasive in residential technology than ever before, and therefore the market for residential IoT devices has grown, too.

According to market researcher Gartner, 8.4 billion networked devices were in use last year; 31 percent more than last year. By 2020, estimates say it will already be 20.4 billion devices. The global market value of IoT products is projected to reach $7.1 trillion by 2020.

IoT is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and connectivity to enable these things to connect and exchange data.

This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human intervention.

To that end, CE ProCommercial Integrator, and Security Sales & Integration teamed up to create the 2019 IoT Integration Awards. Winners were originally announced during Total Tech Summit, which ran from November 4-6.

Here are the winners for all residential AV categories:

A 4×4 5-GHz dedicated backhaul channel ensures strong connectivity back to the router for the delivery of fast internet to IoT devices located anywhere in the home.
