The Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining momentum in the residential space among technology vendors, utilities, and consumers. Enabled devices that can communicate with each other and share information are driving the market with their greater efficiency, automation, security, and comfort. Smart thermostats, for instance, allow users to control household temperatures with their smartphones. Smart meters connect to thermostats for demand response, and some LED lights now have embedded radios so that users can control them from their mobile devices. Similarly, smart appliances and security systems can connect and share status or other data.
After many years of hype and foggy definitions of the IoT, major companies recognize this connected home opportunity and are embracing it in new ways. In this webinar, Neil Strother, Principal Research Analyst at Navigant Research, and Ben Freas, Senior Research Analyst for Navigant Research are joined by Matt Smith, Senior Director of Utility Solutions from Silver Spring Networks to explore the market drivers and inhibitors related to residential IoT and provide insights about where this market is headed.
