1.0 Report Summary

Purpose of Report
Devices in the home are increasingly connected to a cloud service, providing access from anywhere and creating new opportunities to deliver innovative value propositions to the consumer. This report examines how
apps and Application Programing Interfaces (APIs) create new business opportunities for OEMs of connected home controls, service providers, and app developers. It also provides details of the business models and case studies on the use of APIs in the smart home sector.

Scope of Report
Mobile devices are becoming the de facto remote control for home automation. This report analyzes how this trend impacts the smart home strategies of smart home service providers, platform providers, device vendors, and application developers. Mobile Apps and APIs are integral to how the stakeholders position themselves in the marketplace and also how they deliver their value proposition to the consumers. The focus of the report is on the role played by APIs in the smart home space. Related topics like cloud-based smart home platforms are mentioned where appropriate, but these are not the focus of the report. This report incorporates the following:

- Smart home landscape
- An analysis of the role played by APIs in the smart home space
- An assessment of the API as a bridge between devices, the cloud, and services and applications
- Critical issues facing APIs in the smart home space
- Case studies of API use in the smart home space
Geographically, this report covers worldwide markets with an emphasis on North America. Consumer segments
are also based on recent U.S. consumer surveys, and are therefore not globally applicable.

1.3 Research Approach
Dashboard to Smart Home: Apps and APIs draws information and data primarily from four different sources:
1. Public information such as financial reports, corporate presentations, and press releases from major device manufacturers, service providers, platform vendors;
2. Interviews with smart home solution providers, app developers and platform providers;
