Parks Associates: 34% of Canadian households with security have a smart system

Parks Associates moderates Verizon keynote, presents IoT research at CONNECTED +, September 28-29

Dallas, Texas, September 25, 2015 - Parks Associates Canadian research finds one-fifth of broadband households own a functioning home security system. Additionally, 34% of Canadian households with security can monitor and control the system through a mobile device.


Jason Paris, Director, Business Development, Parks Associates, will present research on the Canadian smart home at CONNECTED + during the session "Internet of Everything," Monday, September 28, 10:00 A.M. Paris will also moderate the Verizon keynote "A Connected World with Intelligence" and the session "Canadian Smart Home."

"Low awareness, the lack of a concise value proposition, and privacy and security concerns are all barriers to smart home adoption," Paris said. "Successful channels in this early market stage bundle smart home services with other, more well-known services and provide a more consultative selling approach, including a one-on-one interaction with consumers."
