CTIA Day 1: The Future is Now for Connected Homes

Digital Life also will benefit AT&T’s traditional markets, he said. An example is a promotion being announced in a few days with deals on phones and service for customers buying the connected home product.

Stuart Sikes, president of the Connections conference host, Parks Associates, said the market is ripe for these kinds of services. He said there is now sufficient network bandwidth, attractive interfaces, smart systems and good value propositions.

Sikes said services and products for “smart homes” have been available about 15 years but haven’t been able to find a wide market until the recent technological developments.

“This is about to explode,” he said. “Our problem is not technology. Our challenge is figuring out how to monetize and compel the consumer to spend money on the services.”
