ISC West is an annual security conference held in Las Vegas. According to event planners, the event boasted more than 30,000 attendees and 950 exhibitors. Of the 950 exhibitors, about 115 were associated with the connected home.
Although the connected home is a growing segment of this security conference, this year had a noticeable lack of hardware innovation on display. Much of the news and demos were showcasing integrations and partnerships as well as user-interface enhancements. While ISC West 2018 seemed to have a plethora of announcements and interesting technology ranging from lighting to video doorbells, this year’s focus seemed to be on the integrator and installer.
