Can We Outsmart Technology In The Race To Smarter Homes?

Right now, consumer use is all over the map. Homeowners lose interest in some technologies in a matter of months, and with others, like speakers and Google Home, usage doesn’t pick up until after the homeowner has had it installed for six months, according to Brad Russell, research director of connected home at Parks Associates, a market research company focused on emerging consumer technology. And, at the same time that many technologies have super short life spans, it can take home builders months to select and specify the right product to put in new construction, which is becoming a much more painstaking process with the necessary integration of many of the smart home features.
