Beyond a set of challenges related to security and privacy, it is increasingly exciting to see that, the market is embracing an intelligent, integrated smart home model. In effect, companies are tying security together with intelligent automation of lights, climate control, and other systems to create a comprehensive package responding to the true needs.
I can also observe that, companies such as Vivint are enhancing their value proposition beyond security to provide intelligence. The company recently launched Sky, an interesting smart home assistant that manages all of the devices in a connected home.
The company also announces having installed more than 10 million smart home devices in North American homes.
