Smart home device shipments up 39% to 130 mln in Q2

Wednesday 12 September 2018 | 14:43 CET | News
The number of smart home devices such as connected lights, smart speakers, connected thermostats, smart TVs, home monitoring products and digital media adapters grew 38.5 percent year on year to a total of 130.1 million in the second quarter of 2018, according to a report from IDC. The market was driven by smart TVs and digital media adapters such as Amazon's Fire TV, with the latter category increasing sales 26.8 percent year on year due to the general lack of software updates for smart TVs and the vast installed base of non-smart TVs, said IDC.
