This demand is largely driven by millennials who are looking for smart home technology that will help them streamline everyday tasks while also facilitating a more sustainable lifestyle.

Many millennials prefer using their smartphone to carry out everyday tasks, therefore brands have begun integrating their home devices with smartphone control.
