Research firm announces topics and call for papers for 15th annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES

Parks Associates today announced the topics and call for papers for the 15th annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit: Smart Home Growth Strategies, taking place virtually January 14, 2021, in cooperation with CES® 2021. The research firm’s data shows that approximately 10% of US broadband households own a video doorbell in Q2 2020, up from 7% in 2017. This device is especially popular among households that already have a smart home device—61% plan to purchase a smart video doorbell in the next 12 months.

CONNECTIONS™ Summit, sponsored by Alarm.com, features sessions on smart home technology and services, connected health, data privacy, value-added services, and home security.

Session Topics:

Smart Home Platforms: Simplifying the Consumer Experience

Home Services: Maximizing Value of Connectivity

Home Security Growth: DIY and Pro Channels 

Consumer-centric Healthcare: Independent Living and Smart Home

Privacy and Security: Protecting Consumer Interests  

Value-Added Services: Supporting the Home Network

“The growing popularity of video doorbells sold through many different channels is driving new product designs and competition throughout the industry. Their presence in households with a burgeoning variety of smart home devices requires firms to create partnerships to ensure these many devices fulfill consumer expectations for working together,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “For over a decade, CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES has been a key event to see the latest activities and innovations in the smart home, and this year, like years past, we will bring together industry leaders to discuss their vision for the future and new service and product innovations we will see in 2021.”
