The increasing demand for smart home technologies is based on users’ awareness of the environmental footprint of buildings. Consumers want to reduce their energy consumption by using energy-efficient solutions and thus contribute to reducing global carbon emissions. At the same time, governments are creating incentives to support the refurbishment and modernisation of buildings and encourage the transition to more sustainable housing solutions.

Simplified energy management with comprehensive safety and comfort

In terms of smart home technology, Mike Mustapha, head of ABB’s Smart Buildings division, emphasised the importance of the new “Matter” and “Thread” standards. By seamlessly integrating different devices and services, users have the ability to conveniently and securely control their energy consumption and environment. The acquisition of Eve opens up an exciting growth opportunity for the industry and allows users to benefit directly from ABB’s focus on smart buildings.
