On this #AskIoT episode, we discuss how to produce real ROI from your smart home devices (hint: it’s the data), the types of connected home products to stay away from and what role insurance and utility companies are playing in the smart home space.

Tony Mauro, CTO of Plasmatic Technologies, sits down to explain how sharing your smart home device data with utilities and insurance companies can turn a smart home product from a luxury item into an ROI producing machine, the fragmentation of the connected home device market and why you should never buy generic IoT products for your home.
