Australian consumers have begun adopting so-called Internet of Things (IoT) devices in earnest, according to a new study by local research firm Telsyte, which estimates the market is expected to boom and be worth $4.7 billion within the next four years.
The research firm's study found that more than 40 per cent of Australian households have at least one IoT device, with the average Australian household currently having about 14 different internet connected devices.
Telsyte defines IoT devices as smart internet-connected devices and appliances that allow consumers to control, monitor and enhance their lifestyles, typically remotely via mobile apps.
