Honeywell is introducing the Honeywell Smart Home Security System, a self-installed, all-in-one security solution. This self-monitored system features Amazon Alexa, and can be upgraded and customized with accessories to fit your specific needs for the comfort and security of your home, Honeywell described.
Honeywell, which has offered thermostats, security cameras and a professionally monitored security system, has sent out an email to its existing customers teasing an upcoming DIY home security system, according to a CNET article.
Samsung, a provider of home automation, and ADT LLC, a home and business security provider and ranked No. 1 on the SDM 100, together announced a new professionally monitored, self-installed life safety solution powered by the SmartThings platform.
In sessions, keynotes and on the tradeshow floor, the word of the day seemed to be “change.” In fact, this year’s official theme was “Explore. Expand. Exchange. Evolve.” ESX was held in Nashville June 12-16, and most agreed this is a great venue. Next year’s event will return to Nashville, June 19-22, 2018, an announcement that was met with cheers.
Although still in its infancy, the global do-it-yourself (DIY) market for devices with added smart connectivity is forecast to experience a steady rate of growth at 22.3 percent annually from 2016 to 2021.
