You don’t need a digital assistant to answer this one for you. Considering smart speakers from Amazon and Google were the hottest products during the 2017 holiday season, it’s easy to see where the industry is heading.
Join Tim Bates, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Product at HomeSphere, for a discussion highlighting the technology today’s home buyers want, what smart enhancements builders should focus on, and how smart home tech can help you stand out in the housing market.

That growth will continue to accelerate in the years to come. According to Statista, smart home devices will be in 32% of homes by the end of this year, 42% by the end of the decade, and 53% of the market by 2022.
