Just how popular is the Internet of Things? Popular enough for “smart home” to see a fourfold increase in searches on Yelp over a two-year period. Yelp shared its third economic outlook program on May 15, using site statistics to gauge growth across the U.S. The latest dataset points to “enormous” growth in home automation business in major metro areas during the first three months of 2018. The trend makes smart home automation one of Yelp’s fastest growing categories in Home and Local.
While Yelp’s restaurant searches are among the platform’s most well-known features, the home and local category is the platform’s fastest growing by revenue, prompting Yelp to focus its quarterly Local Economic Outlook report on the category. Nearly 2 million people used Yelp’s Request a Quote in the home and local service-based business category in the first three months of 2018 alone.
As the number of searches for smart home increased, so did the number of businesses catering to designing those connected homes. According to Yelp, there are 30 percent more business listings in the home automation and security categories compared to a year ago. Quote requests doubled from the previous year.
Smart home devices of all kinds are in high by Florida consumers which ranks #1 in the nation. Consumers can buy most any smart home device or home automation product direct from a wide variety of sources. Florida consumers know where to buy all of the smart home things they want, and they also know that they either don't want to or don't know how to install and automate any of it.
