Smart Home Control
Amazon, Google, Apple and Samsung have a good share of the market but there are several others companies in the market providing smart home devices. For now it seems to be a mixture of cable and telco companies as well as smaller niche companies such as Schlage, Honeywell, and NetGear.

Re: Smart Home Control
I think the smart home dominance will begin with a vertical -- say a "must have" thermostat that actually works to reduce heaing/cooling bills. But as Google did, it will be acquired by a hardware giant and incorporated into Homekit or whatever IoT standard owns it.

AMZN/GOOG
I chose the "Amazon and Google" option simply because it's a pretty even-money bet that those two are on track to take over just about everything, anyway.

Re: AMZN/GOOG
Isn't that the truth, I'm sure that there will always be some outliers who have the HTC equivalent of Smart Home control, but this is Apple V. Samsung all over again. I don't personally know anyone who has Google home yet, but I can see how they are going to give Amazon a run for their money.

Re: AMZN/GOOG
The whole purpose of IoT is supposed to be such that it will make it easier for everything in the household to communicate with each other, regardless of the brand or manufacturer. But of course leave it to the companies to suddenly decide that they want to dominate the market now and go into every other possible market they can get their hands on because they want a single home to be filled with nothing but 1 brand name of products.
