"The smart home is now well and truly mainstream in the United States as adoption rates are over 75% of Wi-Fi households," said Adam Wright, senior research analyst for IDC's Smart Home and Office Devices program. "Even so, barriers to the market's growth remain, including the need for ongoing education efforts around products and discoverability of features, privacy and security concerns persist."
