FUTURE ENERGY TRENDS: GETTING SMARTER ABOUT DEVICES AS THE ENERGY MARKETPLACE SHIFTS INTO ITS NEXT GEAR

Among those consumers who have converted to become a smart home family, research reveals that the smart home industry is indeed growing! According to recent data from Parks Associates, additional smart home devices – from thermostats and device-control products to security components, including doorbells and locks – have increased among smart home device owners, and on average, owners have eight of these devices.

“Energy savings are an important benefit for consumers, and many households are taking an active role in monitoring and managing their energy consumption,” said Chris White, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates.

In fact, one third of internet households don’t know what kind of power they get from their utilities, and among those, over half (58%) don’t know where to find out, according to Parks Associates data. To build onto this, another Parks Associates study reveals that even fewer U.S. broadband households are aware of services that offer energy monitoring and management products from their electricity provider (only 19%).
