VoCUL: Smart Speakers Making Their Mark on Connected Homes (Leading Indicator)

Smart Home and ISP Trends: Our latest smart home survey shows the consumer market is driven by the use of single-purpose devices to solve everyday problems, as whole platforms or ecosystems have yet to take hold. That could however change rapidly. While novelty is playing a powerful role in sparking interest for smart speakers, the flexibility offered by voice-first interfaces is evident in their myriad use cases, making intelligent assistants a promising control center for the connected home of the future. The survey, completed April 24, of 3,918 respondents from 451 Research's Leading Indicator panel focused on overall smart home trends, smart speakers and smart thermostats. We also looked at the competition among Internet Service Providers (ISP), including customer satisfaction, biggest problems and plans to switch.
