Research: One in four European homes warming to Internet of Things

It's still early days but interest in smart home devices, particularly for safety and security, is growing in the UK, Germany and Spain.

Parks Associates' latest data on the subject, a sneak peek of which was offered yesterday, reveals that European consumers are starting to find individual smart devices "appealing" but the appetite for multi-device systems isn't there yet.

Those polled for the research singled out smoke, water and CO2 detectors as most popular potential devices though things like smart thermostats, which can add an extra layer of home management, are also piquing interest.

As such, Europeans are not yet as excited as their American counterparts about the possibilities or advantages that a smarter home can bring.
