According to Parks Associates, 17% of U.S. broadband households own an Internet-connected entertainment device and a smart home device. The research house also says 13% of consumers own both a connected health device and a smart home device.

"Adoption of multiple connected devices alters consumer behavior as connectivity opens opportunities for adjacent use cases, new means of control, and extension of preferred interfaces," said Brad Russell, director of connected home research at Parks. "Voice-enabled speakers, wearables, and remotely connected door locks, security cameras, and thermostats are starting to reach wider consumer awareness and adoption. Voice has driven consumer interest in many new smart home products, and as burgeoning connected devices populate the home, the next stages of development involve integration of multiple types of input, including data from voice, displays, cameras, and sensors."
