"Home controls solutions that provide safety and security services, energy monitoring, and convenience cut across many verticals, including broadband service providers, security service firms, utilities, and retail shops such as Saturn and Orange phone shops," said Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates.
