Support: Onboarding and Ongoing Services

The smart home industry is keen on driving market growth. Positive onboarding experiences are critical to that goal while poor experiences drive product returns, negative social network commentary, and an unwillingness to purchase other devices of the same brand. The increasing technical complexity in the home demands new support strategies and tools that can efficiently, and often remotely, identify the root causes of technical issues and address them efficiently.
