The gadgets that operate as the brains of a smart home system, processing, and sensing data and communicating wireless, are known as smart home hardware. It's a smart device which can connect to smart home systems, communicate with other devices, and make a decision on its own. The smart home hardware is linked to the internet, stores data in the cloud, and responds to the user's actions. Televisions, alarm systems, doorbells, speakers, and other devices and appliances are among them. Smart home devices are appropriate for a home setup in which devices may be operated remotely utilizing a mobile or other networked device from any Internet-connected location in the world. The consumer can control features such as security access, lighting, temperature, and home theater in a smart home by connecting its gadgets to the Internet. The 'new normal,' as described by the social distancing practice, forced real estate firms and the architect ecosystem to get back to the drawing board and re-imagine residential real estate products by incorporating new-age design, innovation, and efficiency. The necessity for a whole new set of amenities has reappeared and gained relevance as the makeover takes place. In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, what the consumer would need in the 'new normal' has experienced a revolution, resulting in a paradigm shift in living environments. COVID-19 Impact The spread of COVID-19 pandemic has had a favorable impact on the smart home hardware market. The orders and shipments for voice control devices have increased by a significant rate. For instance, as per Xiaomi research, more than 51% of customers purchased at minimum one smart home gadget at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has thrown a wrench in everyday life, forcing individuals, organizations, and governments to rethink the policies, goals, and actions. Such advances are encouraging technical improvement and innovation. Although, in current history, the home automation industry has risen significantly, spurred in part by COVID-19 and the reality that lockout limitations have pushed individuals to invest additional time in the houses. Due to reasons like more enterprises entering the market and a growing proportion of online and internet sales, the industry has grown to include a broad range of low-cost home automation and mid-range and entry-level products. Market Growth Factors Growing implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions One of the most important overall economic drivers for smart home hardware market growth is the Internet of Things platform.
