Here's Why Amazon and Google Could Dominate Home Security

Research from Parks Associates shows consumers who plan a home security purchase within the next year are twice as likely to buy a smart-home product, such as video doorbells, cameras, or door locks, than they are to buy a professional monitoring service, like those offered by ADT, Brinks, and Vivint.

The trend also has the potential to help lift Arlo Technologies (NYSE:ARLO), which has had a rough go since it was spun off from Netgear last year -- it's lost three quarters of its value since its August IPO. But Arlo, a security-camera maker, has placed its chips on high-priced, high-end systems at a time when the public is looking for low-cost solutions.
