Now, homebuyers in India will be able to play music, control appliances and even place online orders on Amazon even without moving their fingers as luxury apartment maker Embassy Group is launching smart homes fitted with Alexa in India. These homes will come equipped with automation devices that will turn the living spaces into voice-enabled smart homes.
“The smart home devices will start from luxury segment and people who are tech-savvy may adopt it as an experiment. There should be proper infrastructure for it and India is still at a nascent stage in terms of adopting the smart home devices,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO of research firm Greyhound Research.
According to Gogia, there are also some concerns about data privacy and it may take about 2-3 years for the Indian real estate market to adopt this.
