Everyone is excited about the market potential of the IoT connected smart home but the big question is when will it reach the stage of mass adoption? What do you need to know to be successful in this emerging market sector?
First off, consumers don’t want connected devices – they want connected smart services like home security, environmental controls, energy management, lifestyle monitoring, etc. It is not about connected devices – it is about an entire ecosystem of services.
Consumers don’t want the responsibility of figuring out how to connect them to the internet. Consumers do not want to have to study manuals in order to configure, program and set up the systems. They just want it to work.
This means that the smart home needs to be delivered as an easy-to-use, ready-to-go service. The consumer pays a monthly feel and the service provider makes sure it all works.
