It’s estimated by the year 2020, the world will have more than 50 billion connected devices, including phones, intelligent personal assistants and everything personally close to you. The IoT wave isn’t just on the rise, we’re going to be interconnected in ways not thought of before. The next evolution will have a big focus on connected and smart homes. Artificial intelligence will be built into the home to let it manage itself freely. Systems won’t just understand owner preferences but also respond to specific voices and gestures. This opens new dimensions by which the users will interact and use their homes. This new ecosystem is going to be fortified around multifaceted hardware and software systems to give consumers the best experience possible, with security is becoming one of the strongest pillars of its foundation.  Hear how these technologies can provide opportunities for end-users, integrators and others in the physical security channel.
