3 Home Automation Business Success Stories 
Home automation uses modern technologies like sensors, internet and automation control to create centrally controlled lighting, home security and HVAC services.
The home automation business targets homeowners in the upper-middle to upper class. You can market your services by partnering with home improvement businesses to gain market exposure. Create a social media presence and use the platforms to educate your target customers about the business.
Here are some real life success stories of starting a home automation business:
1. Konnected Inc. ($840K/year)
Nate Clark (from Orlando, FL, USA) started Konnected Inc. almost 6 years ago.
I’m Nate Clark, founder of Konnected. Three years ago, I was faced with a challenge: I had a wired home security system but no way to monitor my home on my terms, from my own devices, when I was away. I developed what eventually became Konnected to provide a smart upgrade to my security system, using the existing wiring and sensors paired with some open-source software so that I can monitor my home right from my phone.
As the project gained popularity on GitHub, people began reaching out to me to build units for them. It quickly became clear there was a market need for a solution like Konnected for consumers wanting to breathe new, smart, life into their wired home security systems. Today, we are shipping approximately 9,000 orders per year, bringing in an estimated $1,000,000 in sales, and with the increasing demand, we’re able to further develop and expand our line.
