New technology innovations are hitting the residential sector seemingly every day, catching the attention of a growing consumer base looking to automate and simplify everyday tasks within their homes. But with so many advancements already making waves in the residential market, how much more progress can smart home technology make within the next five years? According to the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), one of the smart home technology industry’s leading trade groups, technology integrators are only getting started.

By 2027, CEDIA hopes to create hyper-personalized user experiences with home technology products built to improve the human condition, Forbes reports.
