Bluetooth® Device Network solutions in home, commercial, or other environments can reliably and securely connect tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices within a network. Driven by an increase in Bluetooth Networked Lighting Control and home automation solution deployments, analysts at ABI Research expect to see a sharp rise in annual Bluetooth Device Network device shipments over the next five years, reaching more than one billion annual shipments by 2026.

Bluetooth Technology in the Smart Home

Whether connecting TVs to soundbars or PCs to keyboards, Bluetooth® technology has been at the heart of the smart home for years. Bluetooth is now expanding its role in the home IoT and securing its place as a go-to technology for the smart home with 552 million Bluetooth smart home devices shipping this year. Analysts predict smart home automation annual device shipments will more than double by 2026, increasing to 1.1 billion in just five years. Major devices driving forecasts include smart home automation controllers, smart lighting, and smart appliances.
