Energy Savings from Five Home Automation Technologies

Energy Savings from Five Home Automation TechnologiesA Scoping Study of Technical Potential
By Bryan Urban, Kurt Roth, and Chimere (David) Harbor
Fraunhofer USA Center for Sustainable Energy Systems
April 2016

Home automation uses connectivity, sensing, and controls to provide consumer benefits, such as enhanced comfort, control, convenience, and security. Many applications can also reduce home energy consumption. With sales of home automation products and services projected to increase rapidly, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) commissioned this study to quantify the technical energy savings potential1 of home automation approaches in the U.S. and to identify their related non-energy benefits.
