Since 2014, major manufacturers have begun to densely deploy smart homes. Although there are no particularly successful cases in the industry from the industry perspective, this indicates that the industry is still in the exploration stage, but more and more manufacturers are beginning to intervene. And participation has made the outside world aware that the future of smart homes is irreversible.
At present, smart homes have been on the eve of the outbreak after more than a year of industry. The industry believes that in 2015, as cooperative enterprises have generally entered the moment of achievement, new smart home products will emerge in an endless stream, and new cases will emerge in the industry.
Domestic related policies
As of 2013, information technology innovation has been accelerating globally, and new products, new services, and new formats have emerged in the information field, constantly inspiring new consumer demand and becoming an increasingly active consumer hotspot. China's market is huge, and it is in the stage of upgrading consumption and informationization, industrialization, urbanization, and agricultural modernization. The information consumption has a good development foundation and great development potential. In order to promote the development of informationization and intelligent cities, the Chinese government also issued a number of opinions on promoting the expansion of domestic consumption of information consumption on August 14, 2013, vigorously measuring the development of broadband, speeding up broadband, and accelerating the continuous growth of information consumption. The development of smart home and Internet of Things industry has laid a solid foundation.
Policy Summary: Enhance the supply of information products
Encourage the innovation and development of smart terminal products. Facing mobile Internet, cloud computing, big data and other hotspots, accelerate the implementation of intelligent terminal industrialization projects, support the development of terminal products such as smart phones and smart TVs, and promote the integrated development of terminals and services. Support the research and development and industrialization of digital home smart terminals, and vigorously promote digital home demonstration applications and digital home industry base construction. Encourage the whole machine enterprise to cooperate with chips, devices and software companies to develop various new types of information consumer electronic products. Support telecommunications, radio and television operating units and manufacturing companies to cooperate through customized, centralized procurement, etc., to promote the competitiveness of smart terminal products, and consolidate the industrial base of information consumption.
Since the world's first intelligent building appeared in the United States in 1984, countries with more developed economies such as the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia have proposed various smart home solutions. Smart homes are widely used in the United States, Germany, Singapore, Japan and other countries.
At the "98 Asian International Exhibition of Home Appliances and Consumer Electronics" held in Singapore in May 1998, the Singapore-based home intelligence system was launched by simulating the "Home of the Future" on the premises. Its system functions include three-table CC function, security alarm function, video intercom function, monitoring center function, home appliance control function, cable TV access, telephone access, household information message function, home intelligent control panel, intelligent wiring Box, broadband access and system configuration.
According to statistics from PARKS, a professional consulting firm in the US, in 1995, the average cost of installing home automation equipment in a US home was between $7,000 and $9,000. In 1995, the ratio of advanced home automation equipment used by American households was 0.33%. It seems that it will take some time for the market to start. The average annual growth rate of home automation market is expected to be 8% in the past five years. PARKS's data also shows that by 2004, the home network market will total $5.7 billion. According to international experts, the sales of international smart home products will reach 2.4 billion US dollars by the end of 2000. In 2004, it reached $14.8 billion.
