Fastest Growing Segment in the Smart Home Market

Connected home penetration expected to almost double globally between 2017 and 2019, with Smart homes forecasted to have 500+ devices per household.

90% of consumers articulate that Safety & Security is the #1 reason to go smart, with connected video cameras being the primary smart security product used by consumers to monitor and secure their homes.

Continued growth in the residential home security due primarily to the following:

  • Crime rates – a home burglary takes place about every 18 seconds in the US.
  • Discounts on home insurance policies.
  • Increased popularity of home automation and smart homes.
  • Tech savvy millennials.
  • New technology has people upgrading existing systems.
