Re: A tougher market than anyone thought?
Yeah, it hasn't exactly been ripe for the picking yet, has it? I wonder if the cable cos are about to make the same mistakes or whether they know more about the market than the telcos.

A tougher market than anyone thought?
Some new competition and changing dynamics makes this still seem like a very interesting market. However, home security in particular was supposed to be one of the great new revenue opportunities well within the wheelhouse of traditional telecom service providers, and it looks like that opportunity has fizzled to some degree, or at least may be much tougher to realize than they thought.

Re: What is it good for?
Good question, Jim. I'm not really sure. What's happening with smart grids? Why do they keep getting pushed back?

Re: What is it good for?
A year ago, these types of services were heavily linked to smart grid deployments, but now given smart grid deployments appear to be pushed back, looks like we are in Smart Home 1.0 vs 2.0 mode. Is the value proposition still as strong?

What is it good for?
Aren't there enough warzones on the planet? Do we need to have new battlegrounds in the parlor? I thought that's what marriage is for.
