Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Andrew Moss, a leading analyst in the Technology sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The appeal of connected home devices is increasing as second-generation products improve functionality and devices are released that cover broadening price points. Voice-controlled speakers have emerged as the main controller for the connected home, but whilst many products can now receive commands from these digital assistants, consumers still need convincing that voice control can provide a convenient alternative to mobile app control.
