In United Kingdom, smart home adoption is on the rise. According to a report by Statista, approximately 62.4% of households are expected to have smart home facilities by 2028**. The benefits of time-saving and convenience associated with smart home solutions are propelling this surge.

Another report also highlighted that the smart home market could save about £450 per year on energy costs*. This statistic accentuates the significant financial savings and the positive environmental impact that result from the energy efficiency of smart home solutions, increasing their appeal.
