Smart home integration
The 2022 ASID report notes homeowners are getting connected: Lighting systems, home alarms and digital thermostats are going mainstream as the tech becomes easier to use. According to ASID, most homes now have at least one or two smart items. By 2023, it projects more than half will have three or more.
