CNET's Connected Home panel at Consumer Electronics Show is a must-seeBy Berit Griffin
Conversations about the connected home have not only shifted from “if” to “when,” but actually “now.”
Smart home tech is here — now — and is by far one of the hottest ventures in Silicon Valley. But this notion of a home and its various appliances and gadgets connected via Internet isn’t just the magical thinking of tech start-ups. Even legacy electronics companies like GE and Philips have entered the fray, indicating smart home tech is officially mainstream.
A few days ago, CNET brought together some of the brightest minds and thought leaders in smart home tech for a panel discussion at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This is a highly relevant conversation for each and every builder, architect and designer. Simply put — and without a hint of hyperbole — smart home tech has the potential to reshape the way we interact with our homes as radically as the television did.
Participating in the panel discussion were:
- Joseph Ouseph, home & business solutions manager, GE
- Matt Rogers, co-founder and vice president, Nest
- Mike Soucie, co-founder and head of marketing, Revolv
- George Yianni, head of technology, connected lighting, Philips
- Ohad Zeira, director of product management, Belkin
- Rich Brown, executive editor, CNET
