SKEPTICISM – The over-hyped Smart Home market continues to take two steps forward and one step back as it struggles to cross the chasm between early adopter and mainstream adoption. This is especially clear when viewing video demos from CES 2016 and the 1957 World’s Fair. Sadly, none of the companies mentioned seem to truly understand what it will take, although they keep inching closer with wireless setup, remote smartphone access, and voice control. But as the linked article suggests, there are still many unaddressed issues. (http://www.mhealthtalk.com/elusive-smart-home/). ADVICE – Market Research can be biased and short-lived, so before you buy any expensive research reports, make sure you get a chance to interview the authors personally so you understand their assumptions, research process, and what shaped their conclusions. Make sure they aren’t just extrapolating trends but also include thoughtful discussion of market drivers, inhibitors and enablers, because you’ll need that insight to craft your strategies.
