According to research carried out by Ernst & Young, 43% of UK residents own at least one smart home product. Sellhousefast.uk explored this trend further by analysing data from Eureaka!, which surveyed 946 British households to acquire a better understanding of British attitudes towards smart home tech.
Their analysis revealed that 72% of survey respondents saw their lounges as the best room for smart technology. Second place, with 53% of the votes, went to the kitchen, and 34% said that the bedrooms were the best spaces for smart home tech to be implemented. The landing received the fewest votes when it came to be a suitable location for smart products and devices.
Sellhousefast.uk managing director Robby Du Toit said that the rise of smart home technology in the past few years has been massive. Despite UK residents being sceptical in the beginning, improved awareness and a shift towards affordable pricing have resulted in a greater appeal for smart home tech.
