A recent study by Edison Research has found that homes have more music in them than before, thanks to having a smart speaker such as Amazon Echo or Google Home.
The Smart Audio Report from NPR and Edison Research has revealed that around 70% of smart-speaker owners say they are listening to more audio at home since purchasing their device.
Other key numbers show that:
- 65% of smart speaker owners would not go back to life without such a device
- 42% say it is "essential" in their day-to-day lives
- Eight out of ten parents say it is easier to entertain their children as a result of a smart speaker
These findings have come from group samples in the United States of America, but another study by Verto Analytics at the end of 2016 showed that 81% of Brits own a smartphone compared to 68% of Americans.
And with the increasing popularity in smart speakers in the United Kingdom (particularly with the Apple HomePod available from Christmas 2017) it could mean here this side of the Atlantic we're even more fanatical about having audio in the home!
Both the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker and the Systemline E50 & E100 - available at BuyCleverStuff - have the ability to connect and pair with Amazon Echo Dot.
This is an easy and simple way of integrating the same smart home technology cheaply, but utilising systems and other speakers for an even better audio experience.
Once you have one room catered for with smart technology, then it's more than likely you may want to put elsewhere around the home.
The reason being? 45% of owners of a current smart speaker are expecting to purchase another some time in the future. Renovating a whole property? Installing and integrating smart tech in all rooms in one may then be the way to go.
Don't forget as well that not only will these systems work fantastically at controlling your audio, but for other home automation such as lighting, heating, security systems and more.
So to bring your home up to speed, integrate smart home tech with brilliant Bluetooth ceiling speakers from BuyCleverStuff!
