Parks Associates’ 25th Annual CONNECTIONS Conference Returns with Insights on Europe, Insurance, and the Smart Home

Smart home products have yet to achieve critical mass in Europe. Parks Associates finds that 55% of UK broadband households do not own and do not plan to purchase smart home products due to lack of personal benefit. However, introductions of new connected products that bring new value is driving increased adoption and future purchase intentions. An emerging opportunity for smart home growth includes the collaboration of insurers and smart home solution providers, as 70 million US households have home insurance and nearly 16 million have renters insurance.

Parks Associates continues its 25th annual CONNECTIONS: The Premier Connected Home Conference virtual series with final sessions of 2021 Europe and the Smart Home and Insurance and Smart Home Sponsored by Notion on Wednesday, November 10 from 11 AM to 4:45 PM CT. During these sessions, major executives will identify the value propositions that will drive smart home adoption in different European markets, examples of smart home solution providers working with home insurers to moderate risk and the challenges that must be addressed to leverage the full potential of this channel to the smarter home, and much more.
