The proptech, energy, home security, broadband and connected health industries will converge next week in Frisco, Texas at the annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference at the Omni Frisco Hotel.

Hosted by Parks Associates, the 26th annual CONNECTIONS conference, held May 17-19, will feature sessions on the future of the connected home, including the rise of home subscriptions services, interoperability achievements through industry initiatives such as Matter, and partnerships between converging ecosystem players.

Parks Associates research indicates American internet households have an average of 16 connected devices and annual spending across home phone, internet, mobile, security, and video services, including pay TV and OTT of $340 billion.

“The market is substantial. Forty-three percent of U.S. internet households have stated strong intentions to purchase a smart home device,” said Elizabeth Parks, President & CMO of Parks Associates. “These trends introduce both new first-time users and multi-device smart homes that are seeking a unified experience. We look forward to sharing more from our library of research tracking the consumer buyer journey for technology solutions.”

On Tuesday, May 17, Parks Associates will host its pre-show research workshop, Quantifying Technology across the Home, featuring insights from its industry research and quarterly research of 10,000 American internet households.

During the workshop, the industry roundtable “Distribution Channels: Moving Beyond Early Adoption” features executives from IOTAS, Rutestock, CamerEye, Doorbell Ninja, and Kraftful. A special session, “Getting Technical: AI, ML, and Sensor-based Technology,” moderated by Stacey Higginbotham, Founder, Stacey on IoT, features panelists from panelists from Vutility, Sentry AI, Johnson Controls, and Silicon Labs.
