(businesspress24) - The European home control market will more than double in less than 12 months according to renowned market researchers. This development is driven among other things by the availability of interoperable and inexpensive home control technologies like Z-Wave and their strong acceptance by leading international and European manufacturers.

On the occasion of the European Home Control Summit, leading European companies are showing how home control solutions can be successfully used and what an enormous market potential they have.
