The survey asked consumers ages 18 and above a range of questions around interest in smart home and specific product and technology preferences.
When asked what interested them most in smart home, customers responded:
“This data suggests a shift in original thinking and marketing of smart home products,” said Juliet Shavit, President of SmartMark Communications and Founder of SmartEnergy IP. “Previous data suggests that security was the top rationale for such purchases. We believe this new data will account for a shift in marketing strategy and engagement with these new products.”
Also included in the survey were questions around product preferences. SmartEnergy IP believes this information can be valuable to industries looking to optimize these technologies in their service strategies.
Customers selected the following products and solutions in order of preference:
“As a research firm that serves the energy sector, we were pleased to see the awareness and appreciation for smart thermostats and smart energy technology,” added Shavit.
The company believes that lifestyle and utility will converge in the coming year as smart home strategies become integrated and providers – both technology and service — collaborate to become more strategically aligned.
