Recap of CES 2017: Are We (Smart) Home Yet?
Jan 6, 2017 | By aylanetworks
Emerging from the big Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week, we wondered, “Are manufacturers introducing anything that isn’t an IoT product?” As Stacey Higginbotham, CEO of Stacey on IoT, put it so succinctly, “At CES 2017, the concept of ‘put a chip in it’ was apparent everywhere.”
In the smart home segment of the Internet of Things (IoT) market, we observed huge growth just since last year. As in past years, Ayla Networks had a booth in the CES Smart Home zone. Last year’s Smart Home section felt like a small island in an enormous sea of exhibits; the CES 2017 Smart Home area took up half a floor at the Las Vegas Sands Hotel.
