New research from Parks Associates shows 41 percent of U.S. homes with wifi plan to purchase a smart appliance or other wifi-connected household device in the next 12 months.

The international research firm says the most commonly purchased devices will include smart smoke/CO detectors, thermostats, and lights. These products will join the billions of devices that make up the increasingly popular Internet of Things (IoT).
