Speed Wire Inc. to Showcase Smart Energy Solution Installation Expertise at Parks Associates’ Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer

Parks Associates today announced that Speed Wire Inc., a leading technology deployment service provider (installation subcontractor) for smart energy and connected home solutions, will be the Dinner Sponsor at the 8th-annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer. The three-day executive conference will be held February 17-19, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas, and will address consumer trends and industry issues in the residential energy management markets.

Research from Parks Associates finds nearly 50% of U.S. broadband households would prefer to have smart home equipment and services professionally installed. Most households want a broad range of smart home products, which would introduce a variety of devices into the home and heighten the need for professional installation and services. 

"The variety of consumer interest in smart home features indicates multiple solutions will operate, and need to interoperate, in the home," said Stuart Sikes, president, Parks Associates. "Home energy management is one aspect of the smart home services deploying to U.S. households. Consumers want a variety of features when adopting home management and monitoring services, so offerings such as Speed Wire's installation services will be important in integrating this diversity and ensuring that it all works together."

Speed Wire is sponsoring the VIP dinner for Smart Energy Summit on Tuesday, February 18. During the conference, the company will share insights on their successful experience as a leading technology deployment company for service providers, utilities, wireless providers, and security companies utilizing smart energy and connected home solutions.
