Telework, or remote work from an off-premise location, is not new -- workers have leveraged technology to work remotely since the advent of the telegram. Modern telework before the pandemic despite being technically feasible for over 20 years remained uncommon: official estimates peg incidence at ~5% in 2018. The ability to work remotely was a rare perk granted semi-officially to senior executives, specific job functions such as IT staff or call center employees, those undergoing...

Extending a smart home platform to support connected health and wellness applications and services is a natural pathway forward for many smart home platform providers.
