LOWE'S SURVEY - Most Favor A Smart Home

Fifty-Two Percent Feel That Having a Smart Home Is at Least Somewhat Important to Them

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — A new smart home study released by Lowe’s found that more than 70 percent of smart phone users in America just wish they could control something in their home from their mobile device without getting out of bed. Lowe’s 2014 Smart Home Survey examined Americans’ attitudes and experiences with home automation.

The data reveals that a majority of Americans are generally favorable to smart homes, with nearly two-thirds (62 percent) finding the smart home most beneficial for monitoring safety and security.

The survey, conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of Lowe’s, polled more than 2,000 U.S. adults and finds that 52 percent of Americans feel that having a smart home is at least somewhat important to them. When it comes to purchasing consideration, more than half (56 percent) of Americans cite either cost or fees as the most important deciding factor (31 percent say monthly fee amount and 26 percent say the cost of equipment), followed by ease of use (13 percent) and security (11 percent).
