The Smart Home System Trends to Watch Out for in 2020

As 2019 comes to a close, it’s time to look ahead to the trends we expect so see in smart home systems in 2020. Consider adding these upgrades to your smart home system in Charlotte, NC to make your holiday season and new year extra special.



First introduced in 2019, biophilia is the concept of bringing nature indoors using devices such as circadian lighting, air purification, aromatherapy, and automated shades to improve one's health. Research has shown that connecting to nature within your home helps memory, mood, ADHD, stress, inflammation, and immunity. It has taken the industry by storm and is expected to come to the forefront of smart home systems in 2020.

Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting has been around for many years, but this year several new companies began making products that integrate into smart home systems. It is predicted that landscape lighting will continue to become popular in 2020. Traditional outdoor lighting bulbs will be outlawed on January 1, so you will need to upgrade to LED lighting to be compliant with new federal regulations.

8k Video

8k video is the successor to 4k video, which came out in 2016. It became more common in 2019, but as 2020 rolls around, it will become more prevalent in home theater systems. Why would consumers want 8K? The technology offers four times the pixel density of 4K and 16 times that of 1080p, giving users a more brilliant, lifelike image.

Network Upgrades

5G will also move to the forefront this year, as cell boosting products will launch, networking schemes will change, and new IoT solutions will arrive. Wi-Fi 6 will also release next year, allowing for more devices to connect to a wireless network at faster speeds. Finally, 3G will eventually end, meaning that you need to upgrade any devices that use 3G. These upgrades will make smart home systems faster and more reliable.

Smart Plumbing

More water companies are joining the smart home market, and smart plumbing will become more prevalent this year. Things such as water purification and conservation, leak prevention, and smart showers are all things to look forward to in 2020. Expect to save money on your water bill and have higher quality water.
