Cable, Wireless Players Try to Snare Piece of $4.2B Connected-Home Business

As one of the segment's most-established players, ADT is taking on fresh competition from players like AT&T and Comcast. "Broadband was a growth engine [for cable and telecom companies] for a long time, but that has now plateaued," said Tom Kerber, director of research, home-controls for Parks & Associates. They're "looking for the next big thing to drive growth."

Only 2% to 3% of U.S. households have at least some smart-home control, he said, but that figure is higher among the 25% of broadband households that already have a home-security system. Parks estimates that 18% of those homes will have at least one smart-home component by the end of the year.
