The Connected Home: Empowering the consumer through the Internet of Things

 

**This event is now fully booked**

Empowering the consumer through the Internet of Things

The connected home is an inherently cross industry environment, more than simply an aggregation of disparate services to the home. It is a shared network and resources model which allows interoperability between various verticals allowing users to be device and technology agnostic when consuming services from healthcare to entertainment. The connected home also offers the opportunity of an innovative platform made up of multi managed systems to facilitate next generation services.

Internet of Things (IoT) technology is enabling the development of the connected home market. New wireless connection between an increasing amounts of consumer devices is providing a wide range of new consumer services in sectors such as energy, security, health & social care and entertainment. Today, one in four people in Germany, Japan, UK and the US own a connected home device and the market is expected to grow in the next five years as the quantity of internet connected physical devices increases significantly.

In this context, this event will look to explore how the Internet of Things and connected home is empowering the consumer and discuss the opportunities and barriers facing the various stakeholders within this complex ecosystem.

The event will take place on Tuesday 8 September, 9.00 – 12.30 at techUK and the subject will be explored through three panel discussions with industry experts.

Panel 1: Transforming the energy retail offer with connected home technologies

Panel 2: The role of IoT in providing better, more affordable health and social care at home

Panel 3: Beyond entertainment: Making every home a smart home

Chair: Jeremy Green, Machina Research
