Over 40% of U.K. broadband households interested in mobile security alerts from their service provider

CONNECTIONS™ Europe, 13-14 November in Amsterdam, features service providers, manufacturers, home automation companies showcasing new video, connected home, and energy solutions

New research from Parks Associates shows growing interest among U.K. broadband households for provider-deployed security services, with over one-third very interested in alerts on smartphones, PCs, and tablets for fire, water leaks, or open windows in their home. Thirty-five percent are very interested in an offering where appliances automatically adjust their settings to minimize electricity usage.
