70% of consumers improved home during Covid-19

Jan 5, 2021

70% of consumers have reported making changes in their living environment due to spending more time at home during the pandemic, and more than half (51%) have reported purchasing at least one smart device during that period – According to a survey conducted by Xiaomi.

“Smart living has always been about reimagining and optimizing physical space to solve problems and adapt to new realities through the use of technology, and we’ve seen this adoption accelerate in 2020,” said Daniel Desjarlais, Global Product Marketing Manager, Xiaomi. “Connected homes, automated systems, and new technology are helping people create ecosystems within their homes to solve new challenges presented by increased time at home, whether it’s adapting or creating new uses for old spaces, such as office space or classrooms, or just creating a more streamlined home that is easier to manage and control.”

Increased time at home during COVID-19 drove significant changes and desires for how people lived in, interacted with, and designed their homes, and smart home ecosystems provided a solution for the unprecedented changes of 2020. Smart devices can inspire consumers to see new uses for their space: such as creating at-home movie theaters with smart projectors, access to a plethora of streamed content, smart speakers, and more; or, creating a specified workspace with increased connectivity, automated lighting, and upgrading existing tech to smart solutions. Smart ecosystems also help consumers automate daily tasks, improving productivity, efficiency, and the home overall; such as automated cleaning schedules with air purifiers, smart appliances, or robot vacuums. Smart home devices can have a lasting impact on how we interact with the space around us, beyond 2020 and 2021, providing upgrades and impetus for long-term benefits.


Everything is changing around us. Nothing will be the same as it was at the beginning of last year. Nothing. We are obliged to adapt to new possibilities and new requirements. Possibilities and requirements. The competition will be very, very tough. Every minute will be important. Every help will make a difference. Whether it comes from a person or from technology. In order to be efficient we will have tools. High-performance tools. Xiaomi has anticipated these requirements and is preparing to come to our aid.
