Welcome to Plume IQ - our reveal of data-driven intelligence and consumer insights from 3 billion connected devices and 60 million locations, managed by Plume’s cloud platform. The data below is from a sample of our locations.

Unveiling the IoT brand champions

Plume IQ

This month, we continue our odyssey into brand popularity in Plume-powered smart homes, stripping computers, smartphones and tablets from the mix to focus on only Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices.

We can reveal that globally, Amazon is the brand leader with 1 or more IoT devices present in 41.35% of Plume households, followed by Apple with 30.47%, and Google with 29.51%. When comparing these results with data from last month’s Plume IQ which included computers, smartphones and tablets, it’s apparent that IoT device choice is less concentrated among the top brands.

Interestingly, smartphones—the most popular device category in Plume-powered households—are very influential on IoT device choice. For example, in homes where there's a high penetration of Apple smartphones, Apple represents 23% of the IoT devices present. However, in homes where Samsung smartphones are dominant, Apple IoT devices represent only 4% of the IoT devices. Similarly, in homes where Google smartphones are dominant, only 4% of IoT devices are Apple.
