Parks Associates reports smart thermostat ownership has more than doubled in three years

DALLAS, April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent Parks Associates research shows that smart thermostat ownership has more than doubled in recent years, from 5% in 2014 to 13% in 2017. The firm's 360 View: Energy Management, Smart Home, & Energy Providers reports purchase intention rates have also doubled in the same time period.

"Approximately 63% of the thermostats purchased in the last year were smart thermostats," said Elizabeth Parks, SVP, Parks Associates. "It has proven to be a hero device for smart home sales, but perceptions of value and affordability are still a concern, as prices of smart thermostats vary considerably. Nest and ecobee have introduced lower cost models, but smart thermostats priced at $200 or more are still driving 43% of volume. The average price consumers paid for a smart thermostat is $175, which is 75% greater than the average price paid for all thermostats."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
