Meanwhile, China's adoption of home security systems is relatively low and, as the market is still at the nascent stage of development, the market share was 4% in 2014, equivalent to USD17 billion. MIC also found that the global home security market is shifting from traditional security to interactive security services with remote monitoring and controlling capabilities, including China.
