Ultimate ISC Tech Guide: Hottest Products & Trends in Security, Home Automation

ISC West 2018 teems with new security and home-automation products highlighting trends in video surveillance & analtyics, AI-enabled alarm sensors, assisted-DIY solutions and more. CE Pro's Julie Jacobson has it here.

Ultimate ISC Tech Guide: Hottest Products & Trends in Security, Home Automation
CE Pro's Julie Jacobson shares some of the hottest (and, um, most interesting?) new technologies and trends in security and home automation, with an Ultimate Tech Guide to ISC West 2018.

Julie Jacobson · April 11, 2018

Not surprisingly, some of the most interesting trends and technologies in home automation and IoT emerge every year at ISC West, the big trade show for the security industry -- physical security, that is, not cybersecurity although that's changing fast.

Here at ISC West 2018, we're seeing some really interesting alarm sensors, a few cool new smart locks (I was surprised too), video surveillance with smarter search engines, recurring revenue (RMR) opportunities. We share all of our early finds in this Ultimate ISC Guide, available in a Slideshare format (below). 

The presentation supplements our recent ISC Preview Webinar, where we provided color commentary on the key trends explored in the presentation. For all that discussion -- between IoT guru Avi Rosenthal, Alula's Dave Mayne and myself -- make sure to catch the recorded Webinar here.

  3. 3. ISC 2018: Setting the Stage • Mass-market smart-home installation services • Cybersecurity – real and imagined threats • Insurance involvement (insurtech) • New generation of users (self-serve, not full service) • Itinerant Millennials – renters, movers, sharers • AI is real (but not much in traditional dealer channel) • Convergence of physical/digital security (CSO for the home?) • Icontrol, Alarm.com, Comcast/Xfinity mash-up • Super-powerful chipsets (more processing at the edge, not cloud) • Regulatory – smoke/fire, cyber, more – Johnson Controls – first NVR with ‘UL Cybersecurity Assurance” cert
  4. 4. Mergers & Acquisitions • ipDatatel + Resolution Products = Alula … new end-to-end security solutions provider from sensors to cloud • ADT – IPO • ADT Acquires Datashield … ups ante in cybersecurity, edges closer to the home • Nest + Google … Officially combined for big, growing ecosystem • Sigma (Z-Wave) – Silicon Labs … More resources from tech company focused on IoT • MONI – Brinks … Nest Secure now monitored by Brinks? Do consumers care? • Assa Abloy (Yale) acquires August … Well positioned for ‘unattended access’ market • Johnson Controls acquires Tyco … Now JC has DSC. What will it do with Tyco’s ownership share of Qolsys? • FLIR – ends consumer run – sells Lorex to Dahua • Icontrol sold to Alarm.com and Comcast/Xfinity … Alarm.com rocks 2017 • Ring acquires Zonoff assets • UEI acquires RCS … First time at ISC with slate with OEM remotes, Ecolink IoT devices, RCS thermostats • DirecTV divests Lifeshield … Just a couple years after Echostar/Dish dumped its security initiative • SnapAV acquired by VC firm … Money to play with • SnapAV acquires Midwest distributor Allnet … New brick-and-mortar play? • Foxconn acquires Linksys (Belkin, Wemo, Phyn) … Ramp up big PHYN JV for water management, leak detection? • Comcast acquires Stringify … Starting to see new IoT devices and connections from it • Amazon acquires Ring and Blink … Now in the security business (Ring Alarm), stretched into more neighborhoods
  5. 5. Security & Smart Home Key Trends, Themes, Topics 75% of connected-home devices are purchased through service providers today, due to strong go-to-market access. McKinsey & Co.
  6. 6. Smart Home Trends • Security still the key driver for smart-home • Voice assistants drive adoption ► • AI / machine learning / predictive analytics – Where in pro home security, home automation? • Return from cloud to edge? (“fog” computing) • No real movement towards a standard • Rethinking ecosystems – open, closed, curated • Deployment (install, retail, DIY-assist, etc.) • Homebuilders & developers – Going DIY and ‘name’ brands - Amazon, Nest, Samsung, Homekit – Reducing wire runs (the troubling case of Lennar & ‘Wi-Fi Certified’) VOICE CONTROL DRIVES IoT ADOPTION Among Amazon Echo owners, 48% bought their first home-automation product only after acquiring the Echo. Among Google Home owners, 57% purchased their first IoT device after the smart speaker entered their lives. NPD, 2017 TRENDS & TOPICS
  7. 7. Security Trends • Security still the key driver for smart-home • Pro security still strong • DIY install, pro monitoring, no contracts • Fewer sensors, more multisensors • Video surveillance, search, non-invasive CV • More anomaly detection, less ‘trigger’ • New authentication methods (biometrics, voice) • Converging physical security & data security: ‘CSO’ • Extending home security to mobile/personal safety • Insurtech influences – Water detection and shut-off – Fire detection and warning systems Source: Parks Associates, 2017 TRENDS & TOPICS
  8. 8. AI / Machine Learning • It’s really happening • Distributed computing > smarter decisions • Dialing up the sensitivity – motion, sound, environment • Anomaly detection • Examples – Vacation lighting (the early days) – Voice recognition (Alexa) – Facial recognition (Google ) – Pre-fire detection (One Prevent ) – Infrasonic sound (Cocoon ) – Motion patterns (Alzheimer’s detection ) TRENDS & TOPICS BUT WE’RE SURE NOT SEEING MUCH OF IT IN THE TRADITIONAL PRO CHANNEL
  9. 9. DIY + Pro: Where we Stand PRICES - from $10 for everything, including video storage, cellular backup and monitoring (Ring) SMOKE / CO – most don’t offer pro monitoring VIDEO VERIFICATION – most don’t support TRENDS & TOPICS • Mass market - alarm + automation – Nest Secure - monitored by Moni, now Brinks – Honeywell (Indiegogo) - monitored by Honeywell – ADT + Saumsung SmartThings - monitored by ADT – Ring Alarm (now Amazon) – unnamed central station • More pro-like services – UL for life safety (not necessarily fire) – Cellular – Pro monitoring – Security-centric sensors – Video verification (e.g., i-View Now) • More deployment options NEXT PAGE ▻ Nest Secure Ring Alarm
  10. 10. Smart Home Deployment • Independent installers/integrators • Retail  – Lowe’s, Best Buy, Sears, Target – Hybrid: Vivint @ Best Buy – Specialty, e.g., TreeHouse • Assisted DIY – Ordered online, configured at factory, shipped for self-install • Mass-market installs (co. employees)  – Amazon Smart Home Services – Dish Smart Home Services – Best Buy Smart Home Services – Cable and security companies • Installation/delivery firms and aggregators  – Installernet, Enjoy, Sears Home Services • New players – Insurance, Utilities (again) • Homebuilders & developers TreeHouse Cool new concept Check it out!
