The Smart Home market is a growing industry which can provide users with convince, comfort and safety. During the last decade the Smart Home market has grown exponentially in Australia, with an expected annual growth rate of 14.5%, reaching a market volume of US$2,245m by 2024 (Statista 2020). With this growth in mind, let’s look at how a smart home automation can provide great opportunities for installers and retailers in 2020 and beyond.

Over the last few years people have shifted from “tap” to the convenience of voice control, with voice assistants rapidly growing in popularity in the market. In a recent Microsoft study, 72% of respondents reported using voice-activated search. In addition, a Gartner study predicted that 30% of all browsing sessions will include voice search by 2020, so how can we adapt to this growing trend?

Well, clearly voice assistants are already a popular feature for smart home automation devices but often users end up with multiple apps and multiple voice assistance connected to one smart home hub, this creates a confusing solution for users. Recently, Vera has announced that they have been working to fix this problem and released an exciting new platform: Ezlo VOI.

CoolAutomation has partnered with ActronAir, the manufacturer of premium, award winning, and Australian made air conditioning systems, to provide native compatibility for CooLinkBridge with a variety of ActronAir zone control air conditioning systems.
