10 Connected Home Stats Every Marketer Should Know

The connected home is the new tech playing field and a fresh marketing landscape – a blank canvas – that presents opportunities and risks for marketers.

These opportunities depend on brands understanding the latest technologies and how to deploy them in acceptable ways to win the hearts – and custom – of people at home.

As we move away from an age of interruption, polite brands who understand their place in the home, are natural and authentic will be the ones who win.

In order to help along this understanding, we conducted the Future Home Study (coinciding with the launch of Home) to investigate people’s thoughts, feelings and fears relating to the connected home.
