The primary drivers behind the global smart home security market’s growth include the increasing number of internet users, the rapid proliferation of smartphones and smart gadgets, and the growing demand for remote house monitoring. Additionally, rising crime rates worldwide contribute to the expansion of the industry.
The introduction of IoT and favorable policies have laid a solid foundation for the smart home security market in China. According to GSMA, China is expected to account for approximately 4.1 billion IoT connections, around one-third of all worldwide IoT connections, by 2025. Initiatives such as the Made in China 2025 strategy, the National New-type Urbanization Plan, and the Smart Cities Projects are anticipated to drive the growth of China’s smart home security market. As the overall demand for AI-powered security cameras installation in homes significantly increases, companies and vendors in China are competing fiercely to maintain their dominance in the market. These cameras offer homeowners enhanced security features like timely intruder alarms or notifications when their loved ones arrive home.
According to a study by Bunning, a prominent home improvement retailer in Australia and New Zealand, smart home technology is gaining popularity in Australia, with approximately 49% of the population having some form of this technology. The study also revealed that 1 in 2 Australians use their smart home technology daily, with general security (61%) and protection against intruders (44%) being the main drivers of adoption. Security camera systems are experiencing significant growth, and the study predicts that most Australians will install some form of security device in their homes within the next five years.
Furthermore, smart home security systems integrate with Google Assistants and Amazon Alexa. These systems include features such as thermostats, smart locks, cameras, doorbells, wall-mounted touchscreen displays, smartphone apps, Google Assistants, and Alexa. The connectivity between these devices ensures continuous home security. Additional features such as carbon monoxide (CO) listeners, flood and freezing alarms, and other technologically advanced security systems open up new market opportunities for smart home security systems. Z-Wave-compatible smart home alarm systems use Wi-Fi-enabled cameras to monitor homes using sound detection and panoramic videos.
The Covid-19 pandemic had a significantly negative impact on the global home security systems industry’s expansion. Sales declined sharply due to production disruptions and temporary shutdowns in transportation systems. The supply chain disruption in China led to a significant decrease in demand for home security systems, affecting key markets worldwide. Factors influencing demand in China included a decline in new development projects and the closure of production plants. However, as the market recovered in 2021, the United States and China are expected to regain their positions as major players in the home security systems market.
On the downside, smart home devices are vulnerable to attacks due to their specialized nature. IoT providers need to offer adequate security solutions for these specialized devices. Additionally, small operating systems like INTEGRITY, Contiki, FreeRTOS, and VxWorks, which power many smart home devices, have less reliable security solutions compared to Windows- or Linux-based systems. Most commonly used devices cannot be easily upgraded after installation to enhance security against evolving cyber threats.

In 2022, the software segment held the largest market share of 45.89%, while the services segment is expected to have the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.55% over the forecast period. The software segment encompasses various types of software accessible through different devices for purposes such as video management, security control, access management, device connectivity, alerts, device monitoring, and authorization. The demand for software is increasing due to the rising adoption of smart home security solutions. Software is used to control smart hardware devices, enhancing home security. The use of smart cameras for surveillance has increased in recent years, driving the need for video surveillance software. This software is primarily used in smart home security systems to handle data streaming from security cameras and surveillance equipment, offering a comprehensive view and an effective security system. Technological advancements, including AI, ML, and motion tracking, have further boosted the demand for surveillance software, leading to the development of software with new technologies by market players.
In 2022, the self-monitored segment accounted for the largest market share of 88.46%. However, the professional monitored segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 16.57% over the forecast period. The self-monitored segment of the global smart home security market is projected to experience significant growth in the coming years. This can be attributed to its affordability, continuous innovations in self-monitored systems that provide full control to homeowners, and easy installation. The best self-monitored security systems typically consist of standard components such as sensors, a base station, and optional cameras. Self-monitored systems represent a more modern approach to home security, targeting individuals who want some level of security without paying for round-the-clock professional monitoring. The most significant advantage of self-monitored security systems is cost reduction, as they only require one upfront expenditure, and the equipment is owned by the client. Moreover, self-monitored smart home security systems are becoming an ideal solution for homeowners who desire full control over their security without entering into monthly or yearly contracts. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the self-monitored segment in the coming years.
