CNET’s Connected Home panel at Consumer Electronics Show is a must-see


Conversations about the connected home have not only shifted from “if” to “when,” but actually “now.”

Smart home tech is here — now — and is by far one of the hottest ventures in Silicon Valley. But this notion of a home and its various appliances and gadgets connected via Internet isn’t just the magical thinking of tech start-ups. Even legacy electronics companies like GE and Philips have entered the fray, indicating smart home tech is officially mainstream.

A few days ago, CNET brought together some of the brightest minds and thought leaders in smart home tech for a panel discussion at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This is a highly relevant conversation for each and every builder, architect and designer. Simply put — and without a hint of hyperbole — smart home tech has the potential to reshape the way we interact with our homes as radically as the television did.

Participating in the panel discussion were:

  • Joseph Ouseph, home & business solutions manager, GE
  • Matt Rogers, co-founder and vice president, Nest
  • Mike Soucie, co-founder and head of marketing, Revolv
  • George Yianni, head of technology, connected lighting, Philips
  • Ohad Zeira, director of product management, Belkin
  • Rich Brown, executive editor, CNET

You can catch the entire 45-minute discussion in the video below. It’s appointment viewing, too, as in you should make the time! The panelists discuss in great detail the implications and potential for smart home tech, along with what’s around the bend.

By the end, we guarantee your head will be swimming in ideas for your next project!
