Survey: 60% of households worried about privacy violations via a smart home system

Consumers are enthusiastic about smart home offerings, especially safety and security applications, even while they are very apprehensive about privacy issues, according to survey results from Parks Associates.

The organization's survey of 10,000 U.S. broadband households, conducted in the second quarter of 2014, showed that almost two-thirds of households are concerned that smart home systems will lead to privacy violations and unauthorized access to their data and devices.

Parks Associates will address the impact of privacy issues, as well as growth strategies and emerging business models to increase consumer engagement in energy management, during its sixth-annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, February 16-18, 2015, at the Four Seasons Resort in Austin, TX. Sponsorship for the energy summit is coming from Lowe's, Alarm.com, and EcoFactor.
