Even when your power provider doesn’t, or can’t. Buzz 4: At CES 2020, CTA's Steve Koenig suggested the IoT needed a rebrand to the “Intelligence of Things” for the decade ahead…to smartly integrate all these devices in a secure way that makes consumers comfortable sharing the data required to make smart homes truly smart. Builders are front and center in smart home technology conversations.
