Smart Homes – But Not Too Smart

New research by Icontrol Networks, a home technology company, reveals that homeowners are more interested in home security devices rather than gadgets that operate home appliances. 90 percent of those polled said that security is the prime reason for a “smart home” system. In addition to standard security, safety devices such as fire and carbon monoxide and gas leak alarms were rated as “must have” items.

Industry analysts predict that as “convenience devise” become more and more the norm – such as the ubiquitous remote control – they will be considered standard items over time and lose “Jetsons” connotations.
