Linear to Present at CONNECTIONS the Premier Connected Home Conference and Showcase

Linear to Present at CONNECTIONS the Premier Connected Home Conference and ShowcaseLinear LLC, a solution provider of residential and commercial access control, security, and health and wellness solutions, announced today that Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development, will be participating as a speaker at the upcoming CONNECTIONS Conference, co-located at CTIA, May 20-May 23 in Las Vegas. Paulson will participate in the session entitled "Competing for the Connected Home: What Channel Will Win?" on Tuesday, May 21 at 3:30 p.m. in Murano, Room 3202.

The interactive panel session, moderated by Tom Kerber, director and researcher of home controls and energy with Parks Associates, examines new channels and platforms that are changing the approach to the home controls market including new competition, the push for open standards and successful strategies to drive consumer interest.

Linear to Present at CONNECTIONS the Premier Connected Home Conference and Showcase"Security systems have proven to be an important starting point in the spread of connected home technology, since so many consumers already have them and look to their security installers for guidance when expanding to other systems," said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development for Linear. "There is also great potential for health and wellness technologies in the connected home, since more people are living longer and will increasingly rely on monitoring or PERS solutions to remain in their homes as long as possible. Linear's recent acquisition of 2GIG and growing suite of integrated products show our commitment to delivering a connected home experience."

"Connected home devices and value-added services continue to be a source of added revenue for companies including security, health, monitoring and controls," said Stuart Sikes, president, Parks Associates. "CONNECTIONS addresses all aspects of the connected home, providing a comprehensive outlook and assessment of the market as well as strategic recommendations for enhancing and expanding consumer engagement."

Parks Associates’ research finds that global unit sales of connected CE, including smart TVs, connected Blu-ray players, connected game consoles, media tablets and digital video media receivers, will grow from approximately 247 million in 2012 to nearly 734 million by 2017.

Linear LLC is also a sponsor of CONNECTIONS and will be featured in the Connected Home Pavilion, an area within the CTIA 2013 Exhibit Hall, featuring new products and services for the connected consumer.

    My first security trade show was in 2021. At the time, I was awed by the sheer magnitude of the event and the spectacle of products on display. But this was the first major trade show coming out of the pandemic, and the only commentary I heard was how low the attendance was. Two representatives from one booth even spent the last morning playing catch in the aisle with their giveaway stress balls. Read Now
