How popular are smart home products?

Smart homes are steadily growing in popularity in the United Kingdom. According to a survey conducted by PwC, 30% of people in the UK plan to buy a smart device for their home within the next two years. PwC estimates that the value of the smart home market will exceed £10 billion in 2019. 40% of device owners expect to upgrade within the next two years.

39% of people enter the smart home market via entertainment. Ofcom reported in 2017 that more than a third of households in the UK now own a smart TV. In addition, 10% of households have an internet-connected dongle or set-top box, while 9% of people own a smart watch.

What can you do with a smart home?

There are many products in your home that you can upgrade to ‘smart’ versions. One of the most popular categories is environmental control, including heating and lighting. Smart thermostats allow you to set the temperatures of individual rooms, then choose a time you want them to heat up or cool down. Some even learn your behaviour and adjust automatically. Smart technology can also help improve safety in the home, with smart smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors available from select brands.

The Energenie MiHome system includes a range of smart products which allow you to control and monitor a number of things in your home. The range includes smart adapters, light switches, plug sockets and more. Get started quickly with one of the MiHome starter packs, available here, which include the essential MiHome Gateway plus several connectable devices.

How does the Energenie MiHome system work?

The Energenie MiHome system starts with the MiHome Gateway, a central hub connecting your MiHome devices. The Gateway acts as a router, allowing you to control your MiHome system using a dedicated app smartphone. Once set up, simply add the devices you want to use. You can add more later on. The app is available on both iOS and Android devices.

With your MiHome app, you can manually control the system’s products, including radiator valves, thermostats and plug adapters. Set up timers and use simple logic triggers to automatically control your devices to your liking. The Energenie MiHome smart home system is also compatible with the IFTTT (If This, Then That) system. You can even control devices with your Amazon Echo using Alexa.
