Tech Adoption Hits the Accelerator

Tech Adoption Hits the Accelerator

Updated on  January  26, 2019

Consider this for a minute: We're living in an era where the pace of consumer adoption for new technology will never be this slow again.

 

Look at the   evidence.  It took several decades for the telephone – introduced in the 1800s –  to reach 50 percent of households. Nearly 100 years later in 1990, cell phones accomplished the same penetration in less than five years. And the pace is quickening even more for recent innovations like smart watches and tablets.

 

While speed-to-market is important, since  consumer expectations change with each new  tech advancement, manufacturers also  need to offer more than just neat gadgets. 

 

On the latest episode of   Cheddar @ Home,   Resideo  Vice President and General Manager  of Consumer Products Jen   Bonuso discusses why the company's   Honeywell Home products  will help deliver a  smarter, simplified home and will continue to be  a  full solution provider for the smart home. 

 

"Resideo's  offerings  don't just  offer a  personalized smart home, they offer a home that starts working for you,"   Bonuso  said. "Whether it’s solutions purchased at retail or through one of our more than 100,000 professional contractors,   Resideo's  Honeywell Home solutions  are there for the customer when they need us." 

 

Resideo's  heritage brand  is valued in more than 150 million homes around the world  and traces its roots back to a groundbreaking invention – the furnace regulator and alarm –    in 1885. That is just about the time another inventor,  Alexander Graham Bell, founded American Telephone and Telegraph Company, which  later became  AT&T. Together, these revolutions changed the course of communication and the home forever.
