US consumers want emergency, security smart home features

The Strategy Analytics figures jibe with a recent report from Parks Associates that found 42 per cent of new security installations include a smart home device such as a door lock, light, or thermostat.

As noted by Parks Associates, Comcast – a long-time US cable giant and recent wireless entrant – seized on this opportunity back in 2012 with the introduction of its Xfinity Home security offering. Among traditional US mobile operators, Verizon also offers smart home security services via a Canary all-in-one home security system. AT&T is also pushing into the home security space as part of an effort to expand its IoT offerings, president of IoT Solutions Chris Penrose said last week.
