‘The Dutch have little interest in smart home”
While the smart home demand steadily rises, the question remains behind in the Netherlands.
That is according to figures from market researcher Telecompaper. The number of people that says within a year a smart home-device to purchase for use in the home, is still quite in the minority.
In a smart home are various “smart” household appliances connected to each other via the internet, often controlled from a smartphone.
The market research firm asked people whether they the coming year, a specific smart home device want to buy. For each submitted device has remained the share of people with ‘yes,’ said under the 20 per cent. A large majority of the Dutch population still has no smart household devices.
12 percent of the Dutch, for example, has the intention to make a ‘smart’ security cameras to buy from which images on the mobile phone. A smoke alarm the house owner a push notification sends during a fire, says 13 percent this is to want to purchase.
Here and there drops the interest even: in march was 11 percent of the people still interested in remote controlled lighting, last month was only 9 percent.
It is the researchers that men are relatively more frequently, say a security camera to want to buy it, but the more women a ‘smart’ baby monitor want.
Especially twenty-somethings are interested in smart home devices. Only 4 percent of the group between 50 – 64-year-old says, for example, the purchases of remote controlled lighting to consider.
