Smart thermostat sales heat up

Parks Associates, a Dallas market-research firm, estimates about 1 in 10 U.S. homes with a broadband connection now has a smart thermostat.

“Six (million) to 8 million thermostats are sold annually, and in the future a larger and larger portion of those are going to be smart,” says Tom Kerber, director of energy research for Parks Associates. “Think about automatic door locks. They used to be only on Cadillacs. But it moved down to the lower-tier cars. And now you can’t buy a car without automatic locks.”
