CES 2017: Home Automation Makes Its Mark

“The smart home is in an early stage, where the primary perceived value is in the convenience of home automation,” said Jennifer Kent of Parks Associates, a consumer research firm. “Consumers are only now starting to conceive of the additional value derived when devices collaborate to deliver more intelligent services.”

However, security concerns might be a drag on even greater market growth.

Parks Associates recently announced new research showing that 60 percent of U.S. broadband households are concerned about the security of smart home devices.
