More than 50% of new security system owners self-installed their system

CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES® examines impact of DIY and smart home on the security industry with executives from Arlo Technologies, Google, Ring, and SimpliSafe

November 7, 2019

New research from Parks Associates reports that 51% of security system owners who acquired their security system in the past 12 months self-installed their system. This is up from only 10% of security system owners who acquired their system six or more years ago, and 88% of self-installers report the setup was easy or very easy for their system.

The international research firm will explore the impact of DIY and smart home solutions on the security market, including strategies to leverage innovations to expand adoption, at the fifteenth annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit: Smart Home Business Models and Strategies on January 7 at CES® 2020 in Las Vegas.

CONNECTIONS™ Summit features multiple sessions examining mass-market business strategies, partnership opportunities, next-gen home services, energy management solutions, and smart home platforms, concluding with a networking reception. CONNECTIONS™ Summit sponsors include Alarm.com, ARM, Cirrent, Inspire, Sprosty Network, Trusource Networks, and MMB Networks.

“New DIY security solutions entering the market are designed from the ground up to be self-installed by the consumer, so they are designed to deliver a smooth, painless experience on installation and setup,” said Dina Abdelrazik, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “These solutions seek to appeal to households unmoved by traditional self-installed security systems. Value propositions such as security and peace-of-mind have always appealed to a broad base of consumers, so as DIY products evolve to deliver an easy off-the-shelf experience, security adoption will start to crack the 70% of households that do not have and do not plan to acquire a security system.”

The session “Disruption in Home Security: Smart Home Convergence” features the following speakers:

  • Naveen Chhangani, VP, Product and Services, Arlo Technologies
  • Vera Tzoneva, Head of Assistant Distribution Partnerships, Google
  • Andrew Vloyantes, GM of Installed Solutions, Ring
  • Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships, SimpliSafe

“Over the past decade of keeping people’s homes and businesses safe, we’ve seen that more and more customers want solutions that fit their lives without compromising on security and privacy protections,” said Matt Wolf, Head of Partnerships, SimpliSafe.

CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES is a one-day executive summit that focuses on the best business models and value propositions in the Internet of Things (IoT), the smart home, and connected and mobile CE and services. The event includes eight executive sessions and a networking reception on January 7, the opening day of CES.

Residents escape burning condo building despite not having fire alarms

Residents escape burning condo building despite not having fire alarms | #TpromoCom #Fire #FireAlarm #LifeSafety | WEST BEND, Wis. — All residents escaped a fire at a condo complex despite there not being a fire alarm system. The fire broke out about 1:20 a.m. Friday at the building on North River Drive in West Bend.

To read the remainder of this shocking news story, click here.

Editor’s Note: As a former fire technician and alarm dealership owner/manager, I fully understand the issue of fire code and the fact that landlords that build only have to maintain their buildings to the code that was in force at the time they were constructed. However, on a personal level, I often wonder if there’s a better way.

I do not advocate changing the rules as they are because a landlord should not be legally challenged to follow changes in local fire code. Every time there would be a minor change, they’d be required to adjust their units accordingly, and although that would not be a bad thing for the tenants, it would cause undo financial hardship on many of those that rent because such changes in construction would ultimately fall at the feet of all those who rent from them, and that is the way it must be.

I believe that communities share in the responsibility to find an equatable way to provide incentives to landlords who take the initiative to bring their facilities up to present day fire code. Perhaps that can be accomplished through tax breaks, or perhaps through rate adjustments on water and rubbish pickup.

Yes, it will mean compromise in that the community at large will realize a loss of revenue, but there simply must be a way to make this happen without driving landlords out of business. For all of us to sit by and criticize a landlord for not having installed fire alarms in a 1980-built condo when he followed all the rules at the time will accomplish nothing.

It’s time that all of us put some skin in the game by sharing in the solution to this ongoing problem. —Al Colombo

Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless


Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees.

The Camera Housing

  • The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
  • Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
  • The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
  • The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
  • Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
  • Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.

Parks Associates today announced Sarah Jones, VP of Commercial Product, Great Call, as the first confirmed keynote speaker for the sixth-annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness, August 27-29 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, California. The firm’s independent living research finds 64% of heads of US broadband households 50 and older are interested in a home system that can sense emergencies and send out notifications.

Connected Health Summit will explore new strategies and innovations that will expand and improve independent living solutions for consumers and caretakers, including innovative monitoring and smart home solutions, and examine consumer adoption and usage of connected health technologies and key adjacencies between smart home, healthcare, and independent living ecosystems.

“The push to engage consumers outside of the facility, combined with advances in consumer technology, have created several distinct markets for connected health products and services,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “We expect to see the lines between these markets blur as care providers experiment with consumer devices as part of their remote patient monitoring programs and as consumer solutions integrate virtual care services into their offerings. Technology companies are now realizing the incredible opportunity to serve the growing market of seniors with devices and services that fit their unique needs and desires.”

Parks Associates research shows more than one-third of people in US broadband households are current caregivers or will be in the near future, and they rank emergency alerts as the most valuable home living feature.

“Many smart home solutions are well positioned to deliver on these key independent living use cases while also providing a valuable user experience to caretakers,” Parks said. “Great Call, recently acquired by Best Buy, is a leader in delivering independent living solutions, and we look forward to sharing insight with attendees on key adjacencies between the smart home and connected health.”
