Luxury Home Automation Systems

Prior to the emergence of managed home automation services (which are now increasingly offered by telcos, cable operators, utilities, and security companies), the majority of home automation systems were custom designed and installed by professional integrators (many of whom are members of the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association, or CEDIA for short). This report offers an analysis of the custom-install market and discusses the implications of home automation being provided as a service. Five year forecasts of system shipments and revenues, split by major geographic region, market segment (mainstream versus luxury), and type of installation (retrofit versus new build), are provided. The leading players in the market are also reviewed, alongside a discussion on the key inhibitors and drivers of growth and technological developments within this space.
