A survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate and Vivint Smart Home has found that Americans are ready to adopt voice control technology, while many are already using the feature.

The survey revealed that 72% of Americans who have smart home products, controlled connected gadgets, such as a smartphone, table, computer, or by a separate automatic system within the home itself remotely. Among this same group, 81% of parents who have smart home products desire to control them via voice activation. The survey also found 48% of Americans currently having voice control capability in the smart home products they own.

The main reason consumers want to use the voice control feature is ‘smart entertainment’; more than half (57%) of Americans who own smart home products with voice control function use the feature to control smart entertainment, such as playing music, or controlling smart TVs and speaker systems. Moreover, 33% of consumers with smart home products control lighting, security products and shopping through voice control feature.

Vivint has been busy pushing this message across in recent weeks. At CES earlier this month, the company introduced a comprehensive intelligent home with Sky, claimed as the “first true smart home assistant”. Sky uses artificial intelligence and can automatically manage connected devices in a home, as well as using data from the home’s sensors and devices to understand whether the location is occupied or vacant. It also adapts to a homeowner’s routine and learns about an owner’s preferences.

A recent report from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), found that approximately two-thirds of Americans (62%), of the 1,200+ US adults surveyed, own at least one IoT connected device.
