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.
