BOSTON -- January 8, 2013

Strategy Analytics predicts that 16 percent of broadband households in the
world will have at least one smart home system by 2017. Increasing demand for
monitoring and control services offered by wireless carriers, broadband,
energy and security service providers such as ADT, AT&T, British Gas, Rogers
Communications, SFR, Swisscom, Time Warner Cable and Verizon, along with
remote-enabled entertainment controls and smart appliances from the likes of
LG and Whirlpool will drive the bulk of households that adopt smart home
systems and services, according to Strategy Analytics’ Smart Home Strategies
(SHS) advisory service, “Smart Home Systems and Services Forecast: Global
Total.” Interactive security services, integrated entertainment and home
controls will be the major revenue generators followed by self-monitoring
systems and services.

“Home energy management will be a market driver in some Western European
countries, such as Germany, where Deutsche Telekom and its partners E.ON,
EnBW, eQ-3, Meile, Samsung, tado^o and Winkle are addressing smart home
opportunities with the QIVICON offering. Interactive security from
and Comcast in addition to ADT will remain the leading application in the US
market and entertainment-related solutions will be popular globally,” stated
Bill Ablondi, Director, Smart Home Strategies advisory service.

The research also assesses the opportunity for other emerging smart home
systems and services, such as digital health solutions, which offer
professionally monitored home-based healthcare services, smart appliances and
devices such as surveillance cameras, motion sensors and programmable
communicating thermostats.
