British Gas, MivaTek, Prodea, Salus, UXP Systems, and Zipato to discuss smart home value-added services at CONNECTIONS™ Europe
Parks Associates hosts tenth-annual CONNECTIONS™ Europe Conference, 10-11 November, Amsterdam
Dallas, Texas, October 1 - Research firm Parks Associates will discuss the implications of the rollout of smart meters across Europe during the seventh-annual CONNECTIONS™ Europe - IoT: Connected Entertainment and the Smart Home, 10-11 November, at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam. Deployments of these and other smart devices will increase consumer awareness of new smart home services, which will help drive the five-year (2014-2019) CAGR for adoption of smart home controllers in Western Europe to over 11%.
"Many European consumers have an energy tariff plan that provides a fixed monthly charge regardless of actual consumption. Smart meters can provide consumers much greater insight and awareness of their energy consumption, creating a market opportunity for energy-related smart products and services for the home," said Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates. "At CONNECTIONS™ Europe, we will examine the progress of the smart home market as service providers and OEMs introduce new offerings and value propositions to consumers."
At CONNECTIONS™ Europe, industry leaders in the smart home market will join Kerber in the session "IoT: Adding Value to the Smart Home Experience" on Tuesday, 10 November, 13:30, to examine emerging smart products and value-added services that enhance the consumer experience and expand the competitive landscape. Speakers Include:
• Seb Chakraborty, CTO, British Gas Connected Homes
• Kurt Hoppe, VP, Applications & Services, Prodea
• Scott Hublou, VP of Global Connected Services, Salus
• Joe Liu, CEO, MivaTek
