Fios, Vizio: New Smart Home Brands will be launched with smart home platforms
A group of home manufacturers announced Wednesday that they will be launching new smart home brands.
The new products will be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The announcement follows several announcements from a slew of major home manufacturers including Sony, LG, Microsoft, and Home Depot.
The companies announced they are working together to create smart home solutions that are customizable to the home’s environment.
For instance, the smart home could be able to detect what movies to watch and set its own playlist, according to CES 2017 CEO Paul Gazzola.
HomeKit, a platform that lets home owners control devices from outside of their homes, is also launching.
Gazzolan and his team are also working with manufacturers to bring more control to the existing smart home products.
Home and garden equipment manufacturers will also be participating in the CES 2018.
