Report: Smart Devices Must Solve Everyday Problems, Security Weaknesses

In their Tuesday webinar on advancements in smart home technology, Sean Wargo, senior director of marketing intelligence at AVIXA and Brad Russell, research director, connected home, at Parks Associates, said that recent research shows consumers don’t see smart home devices as problem solvers and that security risks often outweigh benefits of ownership of these products.

According to a Parks Associates report, consumer purchase and ownership of smart home devices has risen by 32 percent, between 2014-2017, and almost a third of U.S households own a connected and/or smart home device.
