"In the end, both the residential consumers and vendors can benefit from HEMS," says report author Kamil Bojancyzk. "Early HEMS devices may only be represented by technologies such as smart thermostats, but these devices nevertheless represent a gateway to further adoption of home automation. Additionally, vendors have shifted towards a subscription based, recurring revenue model, helping to mitigate financial uncertainty."
The 300-page report analyzes over 100 players in utility residential demand response (DR), connected home subscriptions, software services, and associated hardware manufacturers, identifying both the leaders and the laggards.
