Parks Associates’ latest consumer survey of 10,000 internet households found that 38% of households own at least one smart home device, up 2% from a year ago.
Connected home entertainment devices in the home include televisions, soundbars, standalone speakers and Blu-ray Disc players.
Dallas-based Parks said 27% of U.S. internet households report buying a smart home device in the past 12 months, and 44% of households report intentions to purchase a smart home device in the next 12 months.
“All channels that develop and deliver smart home products have seen new demand, with rising consumer expectations and new opportunities to deliver an integrated connected experience in the home,” Chris White, research director at Parks, said in a statement.
