Reports & Data
In a couple of recent acquisitions, Amazon has expanded and strengthened its smart home play by bringing in a host of new devices and planned services. Having acquired Ring in February and Blink in late 2017, Amazon is set to offer its customers a smart home play that extends to self-install security with professional monitoring as an option. The similarity of its acquisitions’ target core products, and that fact that the company acquired both in quick succession speaks to Amazon’s smart home commitment. But the deals, alongside Google’s Nest Secure play, speak to changes taking place within the smart home market. The changes are being driven by a combination of a return to the appeal of vertically integrated vendor offerings and further evidence of the revolutionary effect that voice control has brought to the smart home market. In addition, the changes will impact a wide array of smart home players.

This webinar will explore adjacencies between and synergies across the smart home, smart mobility and smart cities verticals according to functional areas linked to living, mobility, energy, entertainment and infotainment, security, healthcare, education and work. Next generation technologies like micro-grids, driverless cars, voice assistants, AI-based surveillance cams, robotics, and biometrics allow functional domains to cross over into non-native verticals to offer more seamless, holistic, complementary and automated experiences, blurring the boundaries between segments and industries.
Examples include paradigms like Car as a Living Space or Office, home-based healthcare, distributed energy generation, crowdsourcing home- or car -based surveillance cams for public use, and last but not least the Car as a Mobility Service. We will also provide examples of vendors which are well placed to take advantage of these cross vertical adjacencies.
This webinar will answer:
- Why is the battle for the smart home important?
- Why driverless cars will only make sense in a smart city context?
- How will the sharing economy, asset crowdsourcing, and distributed generation paradigms transform living in the future?
- Which are the key underlying transformational technologies?
- Who are the key players offering cross vertical solutions?
