New: “Smart Living Initiative“ for the market success of Smart Home

The "Initiative Smart Living" was founded by the ZVEI, together with the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, as well as numerous companies and associations, at the international trade fair ISH for sanitary installation, heating and air- conditioning in Frankfurt am Main. The aim of the independent platform is to make Germany a leading market for Smart Living Technologies. 

The initiative is designed to transfer knowledge from research into the medium-sized economy as well as to the craft sector in Germany, a location for business and investment. It is about the further development of Smart Home Technologies and about making the future viability of its corresponding applications understandable to users. In that regard, topics such as trust in the security of the products, cross-industry solutions, customised services and new business models are central to this end.

Digitisation is increasingly penetrating human life and work. Thereby, smart networking of apartments and houses plays an important role. It contributes above all to more energy efficiency, security and comfort.
