More than two-thirds of U.S. broadband households have an Internet-connected entertainment device
Alexandra Gheorghe for MacWorld: Growth in the consumer market for Internet of Things gadgets is accelerating at an impressive speed, and forecasters predict 25 billion devices will be online by 2020. Thus, users can choose from a wide array of products available on the market. On Amazon.com, for instance, around 400 search results relate to smart thermostats. But which product is best? After filtering the huge list by price and reviews, you are left with a handful of good options. Maybe some are more visually appealing than others, so, you select those that fit the aesthetics of your home. But where does security fit in? Is it among your top three selection criteria? Unfortunately, most users prefer convenience over security. This known tradeoff is also partially due to the lack of standardization. There is no “security star” rating for consumer IoT devices. Needless to say, most consumers don’t have the tools and skills needed to differentiate products based on their security posture. Such a system seems difficult to implement at this stage of IoT development. Cont'd...

"When we first installed the A/V system in 2012, prior to the flood, it was a complete retrofit from top to bottom," Owner of K&M Systems Mike Auld explained. "After the flooding, we were able to open up the walls, so it was almost an easier installation. We needed to install a completely new system, and decided to upgrade the home to an ELAN gMV1616 UltraMatrix Switcher with an ELAN gSC10 system controller."

Kayla Devon for BuilderOnline: The Interactive Home is Taylor Morrison’s trademarked term for its smart home offering, which its Houston division first launched with Legrand, an electrical and home automation product manufacturer, in 2012. Last year the company started to look for a better solution that could work across all its product lines. Legrand ultimately won the contract once again because of its newly updated Intuity Home Intelligence platform and the vendor’s experience with Taylor Morrison. Jim Ellison, VP of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison’s Houston division, says the company wanted the ability to scale the smart home solution to its various price points from $190,000 to over $1 million. According to Legrand, the Intuity Home Intelligence system is meant to bring home automation to the masses, by being scalable to both a consumers’ and a home builders’ needs and price points.
