India as a developing country has always lagged in the digital home security market.

In the era of the Internet Godrej has upgraded their home security system with new innovative technology to meet the rising demand for new product of the consumer and to cope with the world market. But unlike the developed countries where Smart city initiatives are playing an major role in driving the digital home security segment, Indians with their paradigms and mindset are finding it hard to cruise in for availing a better home security solution. Godrej is possibly the only larger player to have broken this barriers and jinx among the people and raise awareness for security by conducting different seminars and programs. With change in the present trend of lifestyle people over here are also concerned about digital home security and smart cities.
