Expanding the Value of Smart Access Devices

Parks Associates’ new whitepaper “Smart Locks and Access Control Supply Chain: Scaling Innovation,” developed in partnership with PassiveBolt, highlights the rise in demand for secured smart spaces, the growing ecosystem of competitors and the need for manufacturers to establish partnerships with suppliers who can help them adapt quickly to new opportunities.

Further, 11% of U.S. Internet households, or over 12 million households, owned a smart door lock, nearly double the adoption rate five years prior. With purchase intentions also rising, Parks Associates’ research also finds that 29% of U.S. broadband households reported an intent to purchase a smart door lock in the next six months, up from just 21% in 2018.
