Up until recently, smart home automation systems have always been expensive. Considered an unnecessary luxury, home automation systems have remained the reserve of high net worth individuals, with systems being implemented by home automation experts. However, times are now changing according to an article by nextmarket.
The article states that ‘Do it yourself’ home automation systems are now becoming more common in homes. The US market alone for DIY systems and components will grow to $79m by 2019.
This growth is being stimulated by introduction of new lower cost easily accessible technologies. Systems and their components can easily be purchased, installed and controlled by the home owner, at relatively low cost, making it more appealing to gadget loving home owners who previously found such technologies out of reach.
