Connected Home Service

About the service

Connectivity is starting to play a major role in how heating and cooling is controlled across the world. Customers rely on connected controls to increase their comfort, their convenience, and to save energy to reduce their bills and have a positive impact on the environment. 

Service companies use data to better understand when and how to fix the heating systems, which results in operational cost savings. Manufacturers use connected controls to differentiate from competitors and on-field data to identify potential issues with some product lines.

The wider energy transition is also critical for controlling remotely large electricity loads in the home to better cope with a fast-changing energy system. At the same time, customers will want to optimise their assets (PV, battery, EV, heat pump etc.) and their electricity tariffs.

Connectivity is becoming a new norm for most devices and appliances of the home, if not all. This Internet of Things revolution is happening very rapidly.

Connected climate controls and energy management are playing an essential role in this revolution. This creates an opportunity for anyone involved in selling energy, providing services (energy, heat etc.), or even selling products, to grow.

Within this rather new market, a lot of questions are emerging. What technology choices do I have? How big is the market? How big is it going to get? What’s next? How can my business benefit? Where could I grow?

The Connected Home Service is designed to help anyone who needs to make decisions in this space to have top of the art data, insights and opinions about the market.
