Why Open Wins Over Proprietary In The Smart Home

There are many glowing predictions regarding the smart home, and the wider IoT industry, but a Gartner report predicted only last year that 21 billion IoT endpoints will be in use by 2020, which will save consumers and businesses $1 trillion a year in maintenance, services and consumables by 2022, according to the analyst firm. On the other side of the pond, Parks Associates research shows 19 per cent of US broadband households currently own a smart home device of some kind, and half of all households that own a security system also own a smart home device. The building blocks are there, even if they are too often in platform-related silos.
