IoT for Security Forecast, 2015-2020: Protecting Homes, Businesses and People

IoT solutions are being used to provide safety and security to homes, businesses and individuals. The key drivers of the use of IoT in the Security sector are safety, security and cost savings. Furthermore, security systems are converging with Smart Home automation systems, thus providing complete IoT solutions for home owners.

This market study defines the Internet of Things, the networks that support IoT, and the benefits and issues surrounding its deployment. Further, the study discusses the use of IoT for the security market.

The market study also provides a five-year forecast of the U.S. total addressable market for the security industry; the number of monitored U.S. buildings according to the type of monitoring connection – landline or mobile; the number of security IoT mobile connections; the number of security IoT sensors; and finally, the number of overall ‘connected devices’ mobile connections and how that number compares to the number of security IoT mobile connections.
