Parks Associates’ CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES® sessions feature executives from Samsung, Google, Uber, Ring, AirTies, Hippo, and more

Parks Associates research shows 17% of insured homeowners in the US own at least one security-related device, apart from a home security system.  The research firm will examine successful consumer-focused strategies that meet the challenges of today’s IoT and smart home ecosystems at the fifteenth annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit: Smart Home Business Models and Strategies on January 7 at CES® 2020 in Las Vegas.

CONNECTIONS™ Summit sponsors include Alarm.com, ARM, Bitdefender, Cirrent, Everise, Inspire, Irdeto, Sprosty Network, Zen Ecosystems, and MMB Networks.

“Market players are looking to expand beyond established smart home devices like smart thermostats and networked cameras to products like smart water leak detectors, smart pet feeders, and smart air purifiers,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “Manufacturers are positioning outdoor cameras as deterrents to theft before a burglary happens. This trend is part of a broader security marketing effort to extend the perimeter of home security beyond traditional home access points. We look forward to hearing from industry leaders about the next stage of development in the smart home market.”
