PriceSpy, the fully impartial price and product comparison service, is witnessing a huge spike in searches for smart home technology. According to Zion Market Research, the global smart home market is likely to be worth a staggering $53.45 billion by 2022.
Essential household items, that were never considered ‘smart’ before, are taking on a new lease of life. Fridges can order milk when running low, pizza can be ordered just by talking to a speaker and the humble doorbell can now show who’s at the front door – even if the home owner is in another country.
PriceSpy’s popularity data reveals that smart speakers, home hubs, Wi-Fi plugs and video doorbells are currently the most searched for items in the ‘smart home’ category.
Based on its price and product knowledge, here are PriceSpy’s top picks for each room of the home.
