Josh Smith, CEO at Metova, said: "Consumers have already made the leap to connected devices in their homes, yet businesses are often too overloaded to leverage these new paths to make the transformation into the home.”

Metova surveyed over 1,000 consumers in the U.S for its report. The company says it covered a wide range of demographics and was distributed proportionately across the country.
