Connections Europe 2016 Report: What’s Holding Back IoT Adoption?

The Europe market was identified as “different and complex” compared to the US, in which adoption and use cases differs greatly – as noted by Amit Kroll from Assa Abloy on day one of the conference; “It varies from market to market in Europe – for example, in Scandinavia 80% of DIY, whereas elsewhere people get installer to deploy our products.” Statistics from Parks Associates show although ‘interactive smart home ownership’ remains below 20% of broadband households in the UK, Germany, France and Spain, the UK followed by Germany are leading the way in Western Europe. Interestingly, Germany is the country that places most trust in the custom installer to provide smart home systems.
