Protecting consumer data and personal information is critical as smart home devices move toward mass-market adoption.

Connectivity: Impact of Gigabit Broadband, 5G, and Wi-Fi 6

The COVID-19 crisis has put fixed and mobile broadband networks to the test. Shifting work patterns and increased consumer use of connected devices and services at home bring into sharp focus the critical importance of the networks that provide the foundation of our connected lives. At this same moment, major shifts are occurring in the fixed and mobile broadband landscape. ISPs are re-evaluating their offerings as more and more consumers drop the Broadband + Pay TV bundle. The 5G rollout will bring competitive pressure on fixed broadband providing consumers in many areas with more options for connectivity. Some look to 5G to ease the burden on mobile and home networks, providing super-fast broadband speed, and highly reliable and low latency connectivity.

In this session, Parks Associates analysts evaluate the state of the market in connectivity to the home, revealing how major shifts will affect that connected home landscape.

A visionary presentation addresses their response to the shifting demands on the network from changing consumer behaviors and outlook on the next generation of broadband and mobile competition.

Additionally, a panel of industry experts discuss how smart home product and service development need to account for the rise of Gigabit Broadband, 5G, and Wi-Fi 6, and new opportunities unleashed by the next generation of home networking.

MDUs in Focus: Builders, Property Managers, and Connected Solutions

MDU residents are just as interested in smart home technology as single-family homeowners, but they have different needs and different ways of acquiring smart technology in their homes.

The opportunity for smart home solutions in MDUs starts with builders who turn to smart home technology to meet the demands of residents and to differentiate their products. For MDU owners and property managers, smart home devices and related services can drive higher revenue by increasing rental rates and savings in operational costs through reduced maintenance, reduced staffing, enhanced monitoring capabilities, and improved energy efficiency. Managers can also leverage smart home products to provide resident services such as smart access control for in-home and in-garage delivery, health and wellness solutions, and cleaning and pet care services.

This session addresses these new opportunities to expand smart home adoption in the MDU space while adding greater convenience to consumers’ lives.

Connected Health at Home: The Next Smart Home Market

COVID-19 has disrupted the entire healthcare ecosystem and flipped the narrative on delivering healthcare in the home. Telehealth services are no longer viewed as peripheral services but central to consumers’ ability to access healthcare. Similarly, players across the health ecosystems see new opportunities for connected health devices and remote patient monitoring solutions. Yet, the traditional health care system has struggled to deliver on the promise of consumer-centric care and does not have the assets or experience to provide home services. This session explores the opportunities for home service providers and consumer technology leaders to engage with the ecosystem of health systems, providers, and payers to support the next generation of healthcare – connected health at home.
