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.
The 2019 IoT Integration Awards
The deadline to enter your IoT devices is coming soon, with the regular deadline on Sept. 27 and the “Sorry, I need more time” deadline a week later.
“From thermostats to surveillance cameras to appliances to whole-house control systems… and everything in between… the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous in the home,” says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro.
“Full connectivity and communication among all devices is the new norm that integrators must handle for their demanding consumer customer base. The IoT Integration Awards will help residential integration companies identify the IoT devices they need to recommend and install.”
There are a variety of categories to enter the IoT Integration Awards for residential, commercial, and security integrators to choose, including A/V, lighting, home enhancement, wearables and more.
