  1. Smart Home Shifting to Voice Control

    According to Parks Associates, smart home applications are increasingly shifting to voice control. The research house says 44% of U.S. broadband households have used voice control functions on at least one of their connected smart home platforms, including 64% of heads of household ages 18-24. The high usage rates among Millennials suggest that voice controls are quickly becoming the preferred means of interaction with Internet-connected devices, and younger consumers especially will see greater value in new smart home platforms with voice control as standard in the user interface. "The emergence of voice control in personal digital assistants like the Amazon Echo has helped expand this type of interface as a key differentiator throughout the IoT," said Stuart Sikes, Parks' president. "Developers in the smart home, entertainment, and connected car ecosystems are launching strategies to add voice control to their solutions." Parks will host its CONNECTIONS Summit on the topic at the International CES in Las Vegas in January.
