Selected  Analysis done in the Infrared Sensor Market Report:

The residential control systems segment had revenue of $16.4 million in 2016. It is expected to grow to $56.7 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 16.4%. These systems are automated or fully automated systems that reduce the dependency on individuals for performing minor tasks. The laser temperature sensor is used in air conditioning systems. This feature enables the system to set the temperature settings according to relevant temperatures. The infrared sensors in other applications such as TV can detect the presence of the person and switch on accordingly. When the person leaves the room, the TV switches off on its own. IR sensors can be used for residential applications such as automatic door opening systems, lawn sprinklers, and automatic curtain controller.
