FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The list of companies involved in home control technology is growing. In an increasingly saturated consumer electronics marketplace where operators continuously struggle to find new streams of revenues, the connected home represents a glimmering opportunity. While the connected home comes in various guises, many consumers are already utilizing many smart devices and services for low-level smart home functionality. Building on a foundation characterized by a strong consumer interest ecosystem, members and new market entrants must act swiftly in order to stake a claim in this market.
Within the realm of connected devices, set-top boxes (STBs) (including digital cable, satellite, IP/DSL and digital terrestrial) led the way in 2011. However, by 2014 digital televisions (DTVs) will supplant STBs as the predominant connected device, representing a 37.0% share of the total connected device market in that year.
Energy management, a critical aspect of home monitoring and control, will be huge for the connected home technology market and a great opportunity for involved individuals and organizations to learn more is by attending the Smart Energy Summit in San Antonio, Texas. This year's event will examine the expanding market for energy solutions and home controls and its impact on utilities, service providers retailers, manufacturers and consumers.
Smart Energy Summit | February 25 – 27, 2013 | San Antonio, Texas
