A new study from IMS Research projects that smart home nodes focused on energy management applications will be the most deployed during 2010 to 2017, with almost 150 million nodes projected to be shipped. The projection includes devices from HVAC controls, such as smart thermostats and radiator controls, to energy measurement devices such as smart plugs and in-home displays.Home monitoring and security applications are expected to drive the second highest proportion of smart home node shipments during the period 2010 to 2017, with devices such as magnetic contacts and smart motion sensors projected to account for around a quarter of global smart home node shipments. Longer-term, systems that consolidate a range of applications - such as energy management, home monitoring, lighting control and other home automation into one seamless solution - are expected to drive the market beyond initial deployments.
