From lighting and home security to heating and cooling, the future of the home is connected, and at CES, consumers will get to explore the latest in Internet of Things (IoT) products for the home.

According to the CES smart home page, 15% of households own smart home devices. The devices that succeed are the ones that strike the right balance between consumer convenience and comfort. Many attend CES in hopes of discovering the latest IoT gadgets, but we’re also looking forward to seeing smart tech partnerships where household items form new relationships, like the one between brands like Sonos and Lutron. New potential is also on the horizon with advancements in voice-activated technologies from Amazon (Alexa), Apple (Siri) and Google Home.

In addition to standard household smart devices, things like facial recognition, thermal imaging, and connected luggage are also expected to be on the showroom floor this year. The data collection, processing and storage that these devices are capable of also offers manufacturers the perfect platform to address cybersecurity and the IoT.

The smart home marketplace at CES 2017 will be located in Tech West, open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday January 5 and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. January 6-8.
