Joining Munin are executives from SRP, Resideo and Con Edison. The panel, moderated by Denise Ernst of Parks Associates, will examine how Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) demand response programs are gaining momentum. Consumer adoption of smart thermostats reached 13% at the end of 2017, 32% of households own at least one product that can be controlled with their smartphone, and the popularity of voice control makes smart speakers with voice assistants a new key platform throughout the smart home ecosystem.

In this session, a variety of utility and smart home players discuss ways to change and improve control algorithms and engagement strategies as the smart home industry expands.
