IKEA recently launched its SONOS-made speakers that are making their talk. He has now officially stated that smart homes will reach their stores.
These speakers are the perfect example of the good work IKEA is doing. He joined a company with a reputation in the industry and gave us some very different and nice style speakers for a more affordable price. One is a lamp and the other column can serve as a bookshelf.
Smart homes will be the focus of IKEA
The Swedish company promises that "it is just now that they are starting" and compares this investment to that made for the children's sector. Smart homes will take place at IKEA stores and it will no longer be just the technology companies that will be part of this future.
IKEA already has some value and quality smart gadgets. Examples are their lamps that can be controlled via the smartphone.
You can read in the company's official statement "We have decided to invest significantly in Home Smart at IKEA to rapidly advance development. This is the largest new business we have been establishing since the introduction of 'IKEA for kids'."
The executive of the European giant, Björn Block, also mentions partnerships with more technology companies that value the same vision of the future in smart homes.
"Working together with all other IKEA departments, IKEA smarthome's business unit will drive the digital transformation of the range, enhancing and transforming existing businesses and developing new businesses to bring more diverse smart products to many people. We are just starting"
Smart home prepare to get cheaper
This is good news for all those who want to invest in a smart home but feel that pain in their wallet (I am one of the examples). IKEA is competitively priced and this bet will surely lower gadgets dedicated to making our home smarter.
