Can Technology Keep Up With The Growing Demand Of Smart Devices?
From 2014 to 2017, there has been a shift in sentiment, with more than 60% consumers accepting smart home technology now. The many reasons why consumers want smart homes include convenience, security, entertainment, increasing energy expenditures and home efficiencies. However, the obstacles to mass adoption are the interoperability and the increasing number of wireless protocols.
Wireless protocols, such as Z-Wave and Wi-Fi are the main base on which the IoT infrastructure is built. With the increase in popularity of the smart homes, the functions and protocols increased as well. The manufacturers and engineers are trying their best to come up with the best user experiences, latest technologies, and new protocols. Lately, low power mesh networks are looked upon as the backbone of smart home tech.
We’ve seen newcomers to the space like Thread and existing standards groups like Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and the Wi-Fi Alliance have announced their own versions of mesh network protocols with Bluetooth Mesh and Wi-Fi HaLow.
We can be confident that the smart home market will keep growing. However, we have to make sure that users understand the role of technology in the devices they are using.
