“Smart home companies continue to bundle cross-category devices and services to enhance their offering and expand revenue opportunities,” said Elizabeth Parks, President and CMO, Parks Associates. “Half of recent purchasers who bought multiple core smart home devices at once bought these products within a bundle. Core smart home devices include smart security, safety, energy, lighting, and water devices and smart appliances.”

CONNECTIONS™ Summit speakers will provide insight into the smart home, Internet of Things (IoT), smart energy, and proptech in multifamily environments, analyzing trends and implications for connected consumers and opportunities for companies to build new revenues and innovative business models:
