Talking HomeKit on The Smart Home Show

The Smart Home ShowI joined market analyst Michael Wolf again on The Smart Home Show to round up the latest news. There’s plenty for me to rant about in this episode, including the state of HomeKit today, some recent security concerns in connected home tech, my scepticism around some social “analysis” suggesting that smarthome interest is waning, and the state of retail for smarthome technology.

On HomeKit, Mike tempers my usual HomeKit rant with a pre-emptive reminder that Apple’s decisively slow movements to ensure a secure smarthome infrastructure are to be commended. I’ll give him that, but I’m still gonna rant.

As for retail, I might be on to something here with an idea about who could succeed in selling this stuff to consumers [Hint: you might end up buying a smart bulb and sensors with your next FLÜGR bathmat or BILLY bookcase].

You can find the episode at Soundcloud [auto-plays episode] or in iTunes.
