The two sessions feature the following executive speakers:

“The connected home – both regionally and globally – has undergone a paradigm shift,” said Juan Pablo Boz, Group Chief Marketing Officer, Nice. “As a result, the industry is witnessing barriers that previously separated and defined the connected home in specific regions begin to dissolve. Technology, solutions, and products that were previously niche or unavailable to Europe or other countries are now more readily available. The industry is experiencing a cross-pollination between countries, regions, and adjacent industries, which is reinforcing the positive trend of increased demand of connected home, security, and home automation solutions. The factors driving adoption are evolving on a global scale, making it a very exciting time to be a thriving member of the industry.”

“Smart home devices are having a massive impact not only on home ownership, but also the transformation of traditional property insurance,” said Brett Jurgens, CEO of Notion, a Comcast Company. “It’s a very exciting time in the connected home space as both homeowners and insurers realize both the risk reduction and cost saving incentives of this technology.”

Session panelists:

  • Tali Chen, Chief Business Officer, DSP Group
  • Markus Henkelmann, Director Smart Residential Products Yale EMEIA, ASSA ABLOY GROUP
  • Adam Kornick, President, Insurance Division, Porch

“The European smart home market is one that’s constantly evolving, and the same can be said about our consumers’ needs and expectations,” said Markus Henkelmann, Director Smart Residential Products Yale EMEIA, ASSA ABLOY GROUP. “The modern consumers of today seek convenience and flexibility in everyday life. They look for interoperable solutions that will work together to provide additional security and a seamless user experience.
