Create new revenue streams
by managing the Smart Home.

How can you turn smart home complexity into revenue?

Setting up smart home devices can be challenging for consumers. According to Parks Associates:

  • There is an average of 9.1 connected devices per U.S. broadband home;
  • 26% of U.S. broadband households own at least one smart home device;
  • Annual sales of smart home devices in the U.S. could reach 442 million units by 2020; and
  • Approximately half of smart device owners experience problems when setting up their devices.

With this influx of smart home devices, it’s time for service providers to leverage their hard-won position in the home network. Don’t get relegated to a connectivity provider, all while bearing the burden of increasingly complex support calls. Transform your business model instead.
