Where IoT and 2G Intersect

In early 2015, IoT research from Parks Associates predicted rapid growth in the smart home in 2015, as 37 percent of U.S. broadband households intended to buy one or more smart devices this year. The current positioning for consumer IoT products creates an expectation with consumers that IoT products like the Nest Learning Thermostat or Philips Hue should easily interoperate with other IoT devices in the home.

Given the fact that 20 percent of homes have professionally monitored security systems, there will be a high level of overlap between your current customers and this segment of smart home IoT early adopters. The opportunity for security dealers is to be savvy enough to tap into the IoT trend by making the security panel appear simply as one additional smart, connected IoT device in the home that they happen to already own.

From the article "Where IoT and 2G Intersect" by Shawn Welsh.
