Smart Products and Insurance Use Cases: Understanding the Consumer Perspective

Recently, Parks Associates tested consumer interest in smart home devices that can detect potential damage or loss due to water, fire, and theft and then notify the homeowners and/or take automated steps to prevent the loss. Almost 60 percent of U.S. broadband households reported a likelihood to purchase one of several smart home products with these insurance-related features. While purchase intentions don’t translate to adoption, there is clearly strong interest for insurance-related devices. Interest in antitheft devices slightly edges out interest in water and fire products, but the opportunity is equally robust for all three device categories.
