Home Automation, Security, and Monitoring: Cellular, Z-Wave, ZigBee, DECT, EnOcean, and Other Wireless Options for Home Control

The past 18 months have seen a number of key changes in home automation system offerings and the ecosystems that support that growth. Security and energy management have become key drivers in potential growth for home automation systems adoption. In addition, service providers already delivering a range of services to home owners are seeing the potential and the ecosystem partnerships that will allow them to add home automation as an additional option to their existing service packages. Such a transition has had a dramatic effect in expanding the market for home automation systems. This study analyzes the market and the adoption of home automation systems as the technology increasingly contributes and extends to other residential technologies such as home security, home energy management and home healthcare. The study examines the key channels and partnerships bringing home automation systems to the market. Central to the analysis in this report is an examination of trends in the use of cellular wireless technologies to provide backhaul communications links between in-home gateways and security alarm panels for remote managed services. The analysis is intended to encompass the global market for these technologies, although most emphasis is placed on the North American and European regions, which comprise the vast majority of the market for both home automation and are likely to continue to do so for the remainder of the forecast period.
