Slideshare: Julie Jacobson’s Ultimate CES 2018 Preview – 91 Pages of Smart Home

Ultimate CES 2018 Preview includes hundreds of products, technologies, links, insights and more ... smart home, IoT, audio, video, security, lighting, wellness, AI, networking, cybersecurity ...

CES 2018 will be bigger than ever, and you might need a little help navigating the enormous event. Once again, we present the “Ultimate Preview” with 91 pages of smart-home trends, new products and insights. The Powerpoint presentation adds substantially more technologies, pages and links than the Dec. 20 Webinar that started it all. The Webinar, which includes color commentary from myself, as well as industry veterans Avi Rosenthal and Joe Whitaker, is available for review.

We cover a huge range of product categories including audio and video, but the bulk of the content here relates to the smart home and subcategories including lighting, security, IoT, networking, wellness, AI, home automation standards, cybersecurity, energy management and more. We keep it lively with some of the more interesting discoveries as well.

For the first time, we created a “sight unseen” award for products and technologies that look amazing on paper. I alone am to blame for those “honors” because, as we know all too well, things are never the same as they appear online, and most new products never make it to market.

CE Pro thanks CES producer Consumer Technology Association, as well as CTA's TechHome Division, for sponsoring this presentation. We also appreciate IoT providers Fibaro and remo+ for their support.

Below the slideshare is the raw text of the presentation, making it simple to search for specific companies or technologies.

Please keep us posted on your CES and other home-technology news. You can follow our coverage at
