Smart home in Western Europe: Northern countries ahead of the rest

Tuesday 12 December 2017 | 12:43 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Background

Across the countries, energy management and smart entertainment are the most popular segments. In several countries, telcos are involved in developing the smart home, but only Deutsche Telekom (DT) in Germany has so far managed to make smart home a prominent part of its total offering.
