American households are getting smarter. This is shown by data from the Statista Digital Market Outlook. According to estimates, at least one smart home application is currently in use in 41.3 million U.S. households - by 2024 this number is expected to increase to 61.5 million. Devices from the category "Control and Connectivity" are the most common - these include smart speakers (Amazon Echo, Google Home etc.). In second place is "Home Entertainment" - which includes streaming devices (e.g. Amazon Fire TV stick, Google Chromecast) and multiroom entertainment systems - followed by "Energy Management" devices like thermostats or radiator controls.
