Marketing to millennials, a generation investing in home security

According to Dina Abdelrazik, a research analyst at Parks Associates, 34 per cent of millennials (defined as those born between 1982 and 1998) have a security system.

Fourteen per cent have a self-installed security system, and three per cent have a self-monitored system. In comparison, only six per cent of all U.S. broadband households have a DIY system and two per cent have a MIY system.

“Security adoption is highest among young, affluent and educated consumers with children at home,” she adds. “Security providers looking to penetrate this key demographic may turn to DIY solutions as a method of expanding their customer pool.”
