Research and Markets: Smart Houses ICT, Marketing and Technical Analysis Report

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Smart Houses ICT, Marketing and Technical Analysis" report to their offering.

This report is important to a wide population of researchers, technical and sales staff involved in the developing of Smart Houses. It is recommended for both service providers and vendors that are working with related technologies. The report also helps to understand issues associated with relationship between green Smart Houses ICT and other technologies.


This report continues the project on the Smart Grid development and evolution. In particular, it is detailing technological and marketing characteristics and applications for wireline and wireless ICT (Information and Communications Technologies) in the Smart Houses environments.

With each year, Smart Houses communications technologies are becoming more and moe affordable and efficient on the industry-wide scale for multiple applications, though the concept was originated in the 80s of the last Century. The importance of Smart Houses proliferation is now tied up with the Smart Grid deployments, and Smart Houses communications networks will eventually be a part of a large country-wide project, such as a centralized and intelligent automation system, which integrates utilities and consumers.

As per the report discussion, within the home, multiple technologies target the transport layer of the home-area network in order to carry out home automation. These include wireless technologies such as ZigBee, Z-wave, Bluetooth, and DECT (News - Alert) and other; as well as wireline technologies such as power-line transport (e.g., HomePlug) and coax/wire-based (e.g., MoCA, HPNA) technologies. The fact that so many wireline and wireless technologies are targeting home automation indicates that this market is just scratching the surface in terms of potential, and there are no clear "winners" as of yet.

Key Features:

- The report provides the analysis of wireless ICT (Z-wave, ZigBee/IEEE802.15.4, DECT, and Bluetooth); wireline technologies (HomePlug, HomePNA (News - Alert),, MoCA); and respective markets.

- The emphasis is made on applications of these technologies for HANs (Home Area Networks) in the Smart Houses environment.

- The report also addresses the Smart Appliances initiatives, related technologies and markets and the role of Smart Meters in the evolving Smart Houses development.

- The U.S. market for ICT in Smart Houses (with a base of private houses reaching more than 100 million) is huge; it also has support of the government, which is involved in the Smart Grid project.
