DALLAS, TX — (Marketwired) — 05/03/16 — Parks Associates announced today that 27% of U.S. car owners would like a feature that enables a connected car to communicate with the Internet-connected devices in their home, such as smart garage door openers and door sensors.

“The connected car and smart home markets are growing in parallel with each other, and remote home security and controls, entertainment on-the-go, and home energy management are emerging as key use cases to expand consumer interest in the connected car,” said , Director, Research Quality & Product Development, Parks Associates. “At CONNECTIONS, we examine the crossover opportunities in the connected car and smart home ecosystems and the challenges in bringing these disparate industries together.”

Currently the smartphone is the connected device most closely associated with the connected car — 61% of car owners would prefer to bundle vehicle data with smartphone data under one billing plan.

“Connected car players need to develop assets and foster partnerships across adjacent connected ecosystems, such as the smart home and smart cities ecosystems,” Kent said. “Consumers gravitate towards connected solutions that enhance their lifestyles wherever they are; solutions that are closed, device-specific, or otherwise do not play well with others will struggle to retain consumer loyalty in the long term.”
