OSRAM SYLVANIA Shares 7th Annual Socket Survey Results

Posted by Bill Hirschinger in Lighting

This week, OSRAM SYLVANIA shared the latest findings from their annual Socket Survey. With past years demonstrating a growing interest in energy efficiencies amongst consumers, the 2015 survey also exhibited an increased shift toward smart lighting and LED products–both of which pair those pre-existing efficiency concerns with an interest in convenience. Below are some of the most notable results from the survey according to a press release from OSRAM SYLVANIA.

"The seventh annual Socket Survey from 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."
