Ingersoll Rand’s Nexia Home Intelligence presented strategies for the connected digital home technology industry at CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference
Broomfield, CO, May 15, 2014 – George Land, General Manager of the Ingersoll Rand’s Nexia™ Home Intelligence participated yesterday as a speaker at the CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, hosted by Parks Associates, May 13-15 in San Francisco. George participated in the session “Integrating Products and Smart Home Platforms.”
CONNECTIONS™ focuses on innovative solutions for the connected consumer and leading strategies to monetize digital content, mobile applications and services, value-added services, connected consumer electronics, and home systems. “CONNECTIONS is the only conference solely focused on innovative technology and business solutions for the connected home, and we are excited to be a part of it,” said George. “We look forward to sharing our insights and discussing the critical issues surrounding the integration of products into home automation platforms. Many consumers are beginning to realize that individual apps controlling individual products will very quickly become unwieldy and fail to deliver the full potential of a truly interoperable system of connected products, what Nexia has made core to its model. This conference offers a great forum for industry leaders to meet and discuss various avenues for the industry as a whole to address this consumer opportunity.”
The interactive panel session, moderated by Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates, examined current efforts to achieve interoperability and its importance in realizing the vision of the connected home.
