Intelligence and insights for the smart-home industryJuly 2020
Welcome to Plume IQ, our monthly reveal of data-driven intelligence and consumer insights from more than 2.5 billion connected devices, and over 48 million locations, managed by Plume’s cloud platform.
Are voice assistants driving IoT growth?
True smart home control is now accessible to every consumer—from intelligent thermostats to connected light bulbs. But what role do voice assistants (VAs) play in stimulating the IoT market? Plume data highlights an interesting cumulative impact—smart home users add more IoT devices following each VA deployment they make. And, while the VA category has plenty of headroom (30% of sampled households have deployed a VA, while year-on-year growth was recorded at 10%), each VA can also be seen as a gateway, since users tend to rush to add more after each one they deploy.
