Smart Home and ISP Trends: Smart Home Market Gaining Steam

Adoption of connected smart home products continues to grow at a steady clip. Could the emerging smart speaker category – led by Amazon Echo and just-released Google Home – accelerate the momentum in this space?

Our October survey of 2,051 North American consumers takes a look at buying intentions for voice-activated smart speakers from Google and Amazon, along with other key trends in the smart home market – including the most popular types of connected devices and how users are interacting with their smart home.

The survey also looked at the Internet Service Provider (ISP) industry in terms of satisfaction, biggest problems and customer loyalty.

Excerpt of Full Report:

451 Research Takes on the Internet of Things

451 Research Takes on the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) has gained a tremendous amount of momentum over the past few years, with a definition that varies greatly based on the source. As defined by 451 Research, IoT is the interconnected set of intelligent devices, objects and wearables designed specifically to enable the virtualization of the physical world. These devices create new value, services and perspectives through sharing and deep analysis of machine to machine (M2M) data. In support of our in-depth coverage of IoT, 451 Research is launching its latest Market Map™, which offers a comprehensive view of the multitude of vendors within the IoT ecosystem. Download the IoT Market Map now.

“The Internet of Things has become arguably the most hyped concept in the history of IT,” said Brian Partridge, Vice President of Mobility, 451 Research. “While the buzz is understandable, the reality is that we stand at the very early days of a long journey. Today, most companies aren’t yet ready for the massive transformation to the business process that IoT implies. Fully embracing the Internet of Things is a fundamental shift that brings significant risk that must be managed, and it requires data skills that are in short supply.”
