Infonetics Research surveyed broadband operators who are deploying home automation or home control services about the types of services they plan to offer now and in the future, home monitoring equipment suppliers they buy from now and are evaluating for future purchases, and who they perceive of as the top suppliers in the field.
The results make up the bulk of “Home Automation Service Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey,” an in-depth look into the latest trends in home automation. Highlights include:
- The top reasons broadband providers are deploying home automation services are to increase average revenue per user (ARPU) and reduce subscriber churn
- Home security service is the most popular home control service offered currently and will remain a top home automation service
- Monitoring of appliances and monitoring of whole home energy usage will see the biggest growth among home automation services between now and 2013
