The smart home is the new trend in interiors. But what does a functioning intelligent home look like today? This is a question that Koelnmesse addresses at imm cologne. The international interiors show presents all the key innovations in a real house that is open for visitors to enter and explore.
The Smart Home installation is being constructed at imm cologne for the third time. It will be equipped with the latest developments by major companies and start-ups. For the first time, the installation will be located in the Pure Architects segment (Hall 4.2). Both the return of the special showcase and its new location at imm cologne underscore the importance of this field that has been heralded as a growth market. Market researchers see the smart home as being on the threshold of reaching the mass market.
The market volume forecasts may vary widely depending on the fields of application analysed. But trend watchers expect dynamic and, in some cases extremely rapid, growth of between ten and 50 per cent. Consumers are currently most interested in security and energy-saving concepts that can be controlled via a built-in interface or mobile devices, such as a smartphone or tablet. But self-learning devices are expected to conquer the market in the future. These devices automatically adapt to their owners’ habits.
In parallel to the walk-in Smart Home installation at imm cologne, interested companies and individuals can find further information on this topic on the letsbesmart.de platform. Daily guided tours of the Smart Home will be offered during the trade show. You can find further information here.
