The reasons for home automation's growing popularity include developments on the demand side as well as the supply side. On the demand side, rising incomes and standards of living have combined with increased concerns regarding energy and security to increase the attractiveness of technologies that promise to enhance the owner's quality of life, while also making the most efficient use of energy (especially electricity) and providing a sense of security. In addition, many would-be homebuyers are young, technologically savvy people with an affinity for the latest electronic devices, thus creating a favorable market environment for home automation systems.

Until a few years ago, the cost of quality home automation components was prohibitive for all but the enthusiast market, but now volumes are rising and prices are dropping. In fact, the cost of installation labor and the expense of educating electricians in this field are becoming the most inhibiting factors. Fortunately, other developments are helping to reduce the difficulty and cost of installation. These developments include the growing use of standards-based wireless technologies that allow home automation devices to integrate seamlessly and minimize the need for special wiring to connect them.
