Electricians are Increasingly Missing Out on Commercial Opportunities to Install IoT Devices

Evolve or get left behind…. digital technologies and customer demands are rapidly transforming the nature of electrical work. What used to be efficient is increasingly dated and obsolete as residential and commercial customers demand more sophisticated installations and functionality.

Demand for electrical services is forecast to increase, particularly in the areas of home and building automation through sophisticated integrated systems. The Australian Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow at a compounding growth rate of 21% to over $25 billion by 2024 compared to $7.9 million in 2018.

Customers increasingly expect to be able to monitor and control equipment and systems in real time using their phone, tablet or laptop. While ‘plug and play’ products are now a big part of the market, interoperability between products and systems is also required. If you don’t have the skills, your customers will find someone who does.

These innovations are opening new skill needs and demand for electricians who understand IoT.The electrical industry has developed a course to upskill electricians in this rapidly growing market.

If you want to stand out and deliver value-added services with higher margins, you’ll need to position yourself as an IoT solutions provider. The ability to undertake custom installations for the duration of the lifecycle, from design to installation and maintenance, will be key.
