Interpret SVP, Stuart Sikes, will present research and moderate the presentation entitled Opportunities Abound in the Builder / MDU Market at Silicon Labs’ virtual event “Works With” on September 9th. A panel of speakers representing companies implementing smart home products in new homes and Multi-Dwelling Units (MDUs), including smart lock maker Salto Systems, MDU integration companies PointCentral and Stratis IOT, and home security company Qolsys will present their viewpoints on the future of smart home products in multi-family housing.
Interpret’s Smart Home Matrix® research has determined that renters are almost as likely as homeowners to purchase a smart home product in the next three months. Smart doorbells, smart locks and smart lighting follow smart speakers as the most anticipated products to be purchased.
“The fact that renters show nearly the same interest in smart devices as homeowners shows that the devices are now seen as important and valuable to daily living, regardless of the occupants’ relationship to the residential property,” says Sikes. “Renters of new apartments and buyers of new homes will simply expect smart home systems to be a part of the offering.”
