The technology – Wi-Fi,  ubiquitous broadband, and the cloud – may finally be in place to make smart homes a reality, but the final piece of the puzzle is in telling the marketplace that it’s out there.


Smart homes are no longer the domain of the rich and famous, and today we are seeing the dawn of the “Internet of Things” becoming a common fixture in homes throughout the world. It’s about time.


Some technologies, like  tablets, took off right away.


The time has come for Home Networks. “The home network market will take off, and over the next 24 to 36 months it’s going to create a host of opportunities to provide new kinds of services to the homeowner that they might not have envisioned would be available to them.”

The number of South African consumers currently accessing the internet through their TV sets is on the rise and will continue to grow dramatically in the year ahead, according to sales figures of Smart TV’s and media players.


Wi-Fi and Power line Home Networking represents the Holy Grail for multimedia and content distribution in the house (offices and schools), allowing for fast, flexible and cost effective implementations.


Wi-Fi and Powerline hold the promise to meet today’s home wiring challenges.


“Consumers use multiple screens to perform various activities that require both fixed and mobile Internet connectivity, from watching and sharing videos and photos, to playing games, to accessing social networks, to banking and paying bills online.

The explosion of digital entertainment and multimedia content (from myriad sources such as linear TV, time shifted content, Internet content, etc) and the increased number of available screens in the home (TV’s, PC’s, laptop, tablets, cell phones) are driving demand for convenient home networking solutions.

Powerline communication adapters are suitable for multiple video channels.

Once, home networks were primarily the realm of technophiles -- most families either didn't need or couldn't afford more than one computer.


But now people use PC’s, tablets, cell phones and connected TV’s for school, work, shopping,messaging, downloading music and videos, and playing games.

According to Parks Associates report: Home Networks for Consumer Electronics, home networking reached 167 million households worldwide in 2008 and is forecast to reach 250 million households by year-end 2013.
