With the development of science and technology and the improvement of people's living standards, people are paying more and more attention to the comfort, safety and convenience of their living environment. The smart home system that has emerged in recent years has responded to this demand and the industry has gradually expanded. What will the future development of smart homes look like?

According to the "China Smart Home Equipment Industry Prospects and Investment Strategy Planning Report" released in February, it is speculated that in the next few years, China's smart home will usher in an outbreak period, and the annual growth rate will remain at around 50%. In 2018, China's smart home market will reach 139.6 billion RMB.

Looking at the future trend of smart home from the perspective of technical 

Smart home technology is not a product of cutting-edge technology, but a combination and application of network technology, communication technology and automation control technology. Excessive pursuit of technology, function, operation, and appearance will only be counterproductive, making products not easy to popularize. After all, intelligent products with complex functions and difficult operation will make users feel cumbersome and burdensome. 

What will the future development of smart homes look like? According to the professor, the ultimate goal of the smart home is to let the host think more and let the smart home system serve the owner more according to the owner's lifestyle; Create a more comfortable, healthier, greener, more energy-efficient, smarter technology living environment. To be specific, from a technical point of view, the future of the smart home will develop in the following directions.

In the next 5 years, touch control will become a popular control method for smart homes. It is necessary to control the interior of the home for lighting, electrical appliances, curtains, security, surveillance, access control, etc. through an intelligent touch control panel.

Smartphones will become the more important mobile intelligent control terminals for smart homes in the future. Through the smart home client software or WEB mode of the mobile phone, remote monitoring and control of the home interior are realized, realizing remote unlocking at home, confirming the image of the guest, and remotely turning on the air conditioner and the warming device. This will be the necessary mobile control method for everyone.

The wireless and wired control systems will be seamlessly integrated, with wiring control systems in the trunk area and wireless control systems in small areas, which will be the future direction of smart home control systems and technologies.


Looking at future trends from a market perspective

From the current market development point of view, IPv6 communication protocol, 5G communication will be promoted soon, network transmission and response speed is getting faster and faster, and the Internet of Everything is coming.

Smart home will become the home version of the Internet of Things, and the mutual communication of all objects in the home will be the future development direction of the smart home.

The smart home system will be seamlessly connected to smart national intelligent systems, smart city systems, intelligent buildings and intelligent communities. All smart home systems will inevitably be compatible with the seamless control of the above large systems.

In addition to the first-tier cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, smart home market channels are gradually expanding to small and medium-sized cities in the second, third and fourth tier, and even to foreign markets.

The external environment of the Internet of Things industry has become better and the industry has entered a period of rapid growth. At present, the related technologies of the Internet of Things are continuously improving, and the deployment cost is declining. China Mobile is focusing on the Internet of Things and is based on the “cloud management” to expand the capabilities of the five core areas of intelligent connectivity, open platforms, chip modules, intelligent hardware and solutions. Experts pointed out that the Internet of Things is accelerating into the new stage of “cross-border integration, integrated innovation and large-scale development”, and the large-scale commercialization of Internet of Things will open the gap by smart homes. With the advantage of the Internet of Things, the future development of smart homes may usher in an explosion.
