Voice-controlled smart home device sales to hit 32 mln by 2025

Thursday 13 September 2018 | 10:05 CET | News
Sales of smart home devices with voice control (excluding smart speakers) will surge from just 154,000 units in 2018 to 32.3 million in 2025, according to a report from Strategy Analytics. Honeywell's voice-controlled Lyric thermostat, introduced at the 2014 CES, has since been joined by a number of firms including Samsung, Ecobee and most recently by Brilliant's new light switch, with smart appliances, surveillance cameras and smart bulbs set to be the most common types of devices with built-in voice control according to the researcher.
