The connected home as consumer medical home

Trends, Technologies & Ecosystems: Evolution of the Digital Home from Parks Associates describes the new connected home, with broadband services providing the consumer infrastructure for distributing content to the home and via mobile. As these speeds move quicker and quicker, there is even more opportunity to supply increasingly complex services where they live.

Increasingly, these services will be customized based on consumer preferences, where Parks says, “Providing personal recommendations is a growing feature of content services.” Verizon, Comcast, Swisscom, and ADT Security have entered the connected home management market, with smart energy and water controls. Energy monitoring has achieved savings near 17% in some homes, Parks found.

Multiple screens are also common in households, with time-shifted video common. Thus, Parks notes that 90% of pay TV customers in North America have access to TV “everywhere.” Furthermore, 20% of broadband users watched video on a mobile phone in the past 30 days.
