Land Prepared for Smart Home Integration

In Spain, the home automation industry is experiencing significant growth and it is projected that by 2025, 21% of households will be equipped with smart technology. Homeowner privacy and security are the primary factors driving the adoption of smart home systems. However, the third major factor contributing to this technological boom is the potential for savings.

The Spanish Home Automation Association (CEDOM) reports that smart technology can reduce household costs by up to 30%, as these systems enable you to control various devices within your home. Some of the most common smart devices found in Spanish homes include smart thermostats, which allow you to monitor and regulate your home’s temperature remotely using your mobile phone or tablet.

With the help of internet connectivity, these devices use sensors and learning technology to adapt to your heating and air conditioning preferences and automatically adjust the temperature. Some of the benefits of using a smart thermostat include automatic programming to adjust the temperature at different times of the day, 24-hour control from anywhere, noticeable savings on electricity bills, and warnings or notifications if the temperature falls outside of the designated range.

Smart plugs have emerged as one of the most versatile devices on the market, allowing users to control a range of appliances including TVs, mobile phones, and heating systems. With the ability to switch them on and off remotely, smart plugs offer unparalleled convenience, even when you are away from home. They are available in several types: sockets with timers, useful for configuring a device to switch on at a specific time; sockets with a programmer, commonly used in offices to regulate lighting; and sockets with remote control, which can be activated by voice or remote controls.

Smart light bulbs are another innovative product in the home automation market, making everyday life more comfortable and energy-efficient. In addition to adjusting the brightness and colour of the light at any time, they can be programmed to turn on and off automatically and can be switched off when you are away from home. With LED smart bulbs, users can create customised lighting scenes to suit their preferences and save significantly on electricity bills.

For homeowners concerned about security, smart security cameras are a valuable addition to any home. Using artificial intelligence technology, these cameras capture images of faces, objects, and movements, alerting homeowners and authorities of any suspicious activity. Other benefits of smart security cameras include the ability to control access to the property at all times and bidirectional communication, providing clear and natural sound.

Since 2015, the number of homes equipped with smart home systems has increased by a factor of 2.6 worldwide, demonstrating the growing popularity of home automation and smart technology. If you are considering incorporating any of these devices into your home, there is no better time to do so.
