Re: Plumbing
@batye:

Agree with you. As i mentioned in one of my earlier comments, smart home technology still needs to get mature and stable enough for people to start adapting, because this is not as simple as trying out any new product.

Re: Plumbing
@DB:

There is no doubt that present consumer is playing it safe these days due to valid reasons. So it is not realistics to see any jump in smart home technology sales in near term. However that is not the only reason, that technology also needs to get a bit mature and stable.

Also what you mentioned about how service providers can start being offensive by partnering with competitors sounds like a good idea.

Re: Plumbing
Probably lots of consumers are still not ready to reach into their pockets to buy the smart home devices but as noted it's probably true that "Service providers must move from defense to offense and turn web-scale competitors into partners."

Re: Plumbing
@afwriter:

That is the challenge. And the example that you quoted could be one of the most practical ones. Can we afford such an experience in any way?

All i want to say is smart home technology hasn't reached to a level where consumers can just jump in and adapt. There are lot of apprehensions still going around and those are real serious ones that we have to count.

Re: Plumbing
The possibilities are truly endless, but do we actually need all of this stuff? I can imagine a smart toilet being awesome until it breaks and costs three times the money to repair or renders you toiletless.

Re: Plumbing
@batye and the impact is that much greater for owners and managers of apartment buildings. I once did some writing work for someone like that who was concentrating on the benefits of IoT for real estate of that kind.
