What are the biggest challenges and barriers for new smart home products and services in Europe?

The main challenge to overcome for the smart home solution providers is how to reach the mass market. The way on a high level is simple: sell added value!  And behind that, the key of success is how to provide real added value for users and how to communicate it.

What new channels are driving growth in the smart home industry?

The smart home products offer a unique chance for the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and Consumer Electronics retailers. Why? Because they have the opportunity to step in the market of security and energy management systems - two domains dominated traditionally by professional installers.

How is the role of the service provider changing in the smart home?

Connectivity is the key to enable each of us to stay informed about what’s going on at home, even if you are not. It’s a huge chance for professional providers as well as for peer-helping community.
