CES 2022 Highlights: Research & Innovation

Our team felt the excitement last week at CES. Like any event, we diligently planned for months – our speakers, the content, and the delivery of the research were top of mind as we worked towards our first hosted in-person event since we had to move to a virtual schedule in March 2020. The last event we hosted was our annual Smart Energy Summit in Austin Texas in 2020.

Despite all sorts of challenges, our team stayed committed to attending CES and hosting our 16th annual CONNECTIONS Summit. It was a huge SUCCESS! The event, sponsored by Cox Communities,, Cooktop Safety, EarlySense, Essence, GE Lighting, Homebase, Johnson Controls, Masonite, Notion, and Zen Ecosystems, addressed privacy and security issues, UI preferences, growth in the multifamily space, interoperability efforts, including the new initiative Matter, and the blurred lines between smart home and security solutions.

We brought hundreds of industry leaders back together again to talk about the latest technology, partnerships, announcements, and what will be the next stage of growth for the connected home. It's going to be a great year for consumer technology.

There were tons of major impactful announcements — it’s hard to note them all but thought I would try to highlight some here. The themes throughout CES and for the year 2022 are all about connectivity, integration, interoperability, sustainability, and digital transformation. 

Below includes a compiled list of Parks Associates top-line data we have released and a big list of what I thought was interesting at the show. We can’t wait for all that 2022 brings!
