More than a quarter of Americans now own at least one connected home device, and they're enjoying more money, more time, and less worries because of it. In fact, nine out of ten Smart Home users would recommend it to others. Here are three big reasons why.
A Smart Home Gives You Peace of Mind
Stat: 72 percent of Smart Home users say it gives them peace of mind on home security.
Families with children enjoy this benefit more than most, whether protecting young kids at play in the back yard or staying in touch with home-alone teens. Almost four-fifths of Smart Home parents with under-18s say they enjoy more peace of mind.
A Smart Home Saves You Time
Stat: 57 percent of people with Smart Home tech say that it saves them time—30 minutes a day on average.

A Smart Home Saves You Money
Stat: 45 percent of Smart Home users say it saves them an average of $98.30 a month.
