Thailand Smart Home Market
Thailand’s smart home market is forecasted to grow rapidly in the next years. China, Europe, the United States of America, and Russia send their innovative home technology to Thailand.
Using intelligent home devices in Thailand, such as those controlling lighting, doors, and camera systems, is becoming increasingly popular. Smart door locks, bright lighting, video security devices, connected occupancy sensors, and whole-home alarm systems are Thailand’s most popular smart home products.
Bangkok is a city of incredible diversity, and its population, comprised of Thais and immigrants from other nations, is even more diverse. The city was built using concrete, bricks, and even more concrete. The majority of Bangkok’s installations of home automation systems face difficulties due to the absence of hollow walls or conduits ready for wiring. Most of Bangkok’s smart home systems are either installed with wireless sensors or prewired in the home during construction.
A high demand exists in Phuket for lighting controls, mood control systems, and scene control systems. The home automation systems that control lighting and air conditioning make up the majority of the market in Phuket.
Most customers are interested in lighting products with a single bulb connected to a smartphone app. There are a few online stores in the country that sell a variety of smart devices, but there are not very many that sell reasonably priced solutions from well-known brands.
The market for intelligent security devices in Thailand is expanding at a steady rate. At the same time, more people are becoming aware of the benefits of home automation devices.
In Thailand, the camera that has seen the most success is the Wi-Fi smart IP camera. They are affordable, have an excellent operating capacity, and have a high level of safety. You can purchase the cameras in sets or as individual pieces. The vast majority of the intelligent security cameras in Thailand are powered by apps from China and hosted on Chinese servers.
The majority provide free core services but charge for additional add-ons. The vast majority of these cameras have a resolution of at least 2 megapixels and are High Definition. They operate on 5V and can be powered by the charger for a mobile device if that becomes necessary.
The use of smart wall switches that are connected to the internet is gaining popularity. Most switches require pairing Z-Wave, Zigbee, Aqara, or Mi Control. The majority are compatible with Google Home and Alexa. The price of the wall switches is significantly lower than that of most Western brands.
