38% of U.S. broadband households willing to purchase connected home energy management products

Parks Associates today announced smarthome research showing 38% of U.S. broadband households are willing to purchase at least one smart home energy management (HEM) product. Over 25% are willing to purchase two or more, including lighting controls, appliance switches, and thermostats that can be controlled remotely, but only 1% are interested exclusively in HEM products. Safety offerings such as detectors and call buttons are the most popular smarthome products. 

Parks Associates' fifth-annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer will be held February 15-17, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin. The event features early sponsorship support from Speed Wire, Alarm.com, ecobee, Lowe's, People Power, Percepscion, PlanetEcosystems, Qualcomm, Schneider Electric, and Technicolor and a keynote from Stuart Lombard, President and CEO, ecobee. 

"Nearly 40% of U.S. broadband households are interested in purchasing energy management products for the home, but in most cases, they want these products within a broader offering of smarthome products," said Stuart Sikes, president, Parks Associates. "At 2014 Smart Energy Summit, we will analyze strategies from utilities and telco/cable provider strategies, consumer engagement, partnership opportunities, and the impact of connectivity and big data on demand response (DR) and energy efficiency programs."

Panasonic officially quits plasma TVs

We (engadget) may compare Panasonic to the character of Michael Myers way too often, but this Halloween the analogy is particularly relevant given news the company is officially killing plasma TV production. Manufacturing of plasma panels will end in December this year, earlier than the most recent rumor suggested, with the last remaining factories going dark in March 2014 at the same time sales efforts will cease. It's a strategic decision to free up resources, the firm claims, citing low demand for plasma and the impact of LCD development as reasons for its exit. "Severe price competition" as a result of the Lehman Brothers collapse way back in 2008 is also blamed, so when you're left wanting the warm glow of new Panasonic plasma next year, you know who to shake an angry fist at.
