Major verticals in smart homes are home intelligence, access control, entertainment, home comfort, connectivity, wellness, home safety etc. The challenge is that these verticals are delivered by separate services which are locked into their own "controller" ecosystem. Roshan D'Souza, CEO of Xperio Labs, strongly believes that service providers like telcos and cable TV networks have the ability to converge all of these various verticals via the easy-to-use SPRNGPOD application.
Hilton is one of the hotel companies that wants to deliver smart, hyper-personalized hotel rooms. It is currently beta testing the concept “Connected Room” using the Internet of Things (IoT). The company intends to expand this feature to more hotels worldwide in 2018.
