Smart Homes: Indicators Of Escalating Consumer Interest In The Technology

Another report on the topic is just out this week from Parks Associates that predicts 50 percent of North American broadband households will be smart homes by 2020. According to the research firm, ownership of smart home products increased from 16 percent to 19 percent of U.S. broadband households in the last year, and 44 percent of households that do not have a smart home device plan to purchase one in 2016.

Parks says a big driver is the fact that home and consumer-based Internet of Things (IoT) opportunities are attracting companies like Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook. They’re planning and rolling out products around everything from home entertainment and connected CE, smart home and security, apps and mobile devices and connected cars and healthcare.
