Homes Try to Reach Smart Switch

Regardless of the motivation — coolness, environmental concerns or pocketbook savings — sales of energy-related smart home products are rising rapidly. According to the research firm Parks Associates, 10 million smart thermostats, plugs, power strips and lights were sold last year, valued at $850 million. By 2017, Parks predicts, that market will nearly double to 19 million products worth $1.6 billion.
