2015 OSRAM SYLVANIA Socket Survey

​7th Annual OSRAM SYLVANIA Socket Survey Finds That More Americans Than Ever are Discovering LED Lighting While Smart Lighting is on the Rise.

The seventh annual Socket Survey from OSRAM SYLVANIA found 65 percent of Americans have purchased LEDs for use in their homes and the majority (64 percent) of Americans who did, purchased LEDs for sockets in general illumination. Of the respondents who were identified as LED users, the most valued benefits of making the switch were reduced energy consumption (96%), longer bulb lifespan (93%), and cost savings (93%).

With the continued growth of the home automation and smart home markets, this edition of the OSRAM SYLVANIA Socket Survey also took a deeper look at consumer attitudes and awareness of smart lighting technologies. While 62 percent of respondents indicated they were aware of smart lighting technology, only 10 percent have actually purchased smart bulbs for their homes. However, 83 percent of those surveyed believe smart lighting is a good introduction to home automation technologies and 72 percent felt smart lighting will eventually replace traditional light bulbs.
