0:00 Hi, I'm Rob Martens, Futurist and Vice
0:12 President of Strategy and Partnerships
0:13 for Allegion, maker of Schlage Locks. Late
0:17 last year, we made some predictions about
0:18 what we might see at the 2017 Consumer
0:21 Electronics show. Let's talk about the
0:23 first prediction, content and
0:25 entertainment innovations. So I think
0:28 what we're going to see is this is absolutely
0:29 not a flash-in-the-pan. It's not a
0:31 24-hour trend. We're going to see it
0:34 being really reinforced and really
0:35 adopted as we see incredible content
0:37 coming out and even more hardware to
0:39 give you just a fantastic experience.
0:40 Moving on to our second prediction, a
0:43 smarter smart home.
0:44 Smart home adoption is increasing,
0:47 especially with the help of known brands
0:49 brands like Schlage and Hunter,
0:51 Chamberlain, Honeywell, Lutron - ones that
0:55 people can relate to that have
0:57 confidence in that they feel that they
0:58 can trust. Lutron’s hope is that within
1:01 the next two to three years, we're not
1:03 talking about smart home anymore.
1:05 We're just talking about the home and how
1:07 people are using technology throughout
1:08 every room to live life better and solve
1:11 everyday problems. In 2017, what's
1:14 iDevices perspective on this?
1:17 We're staying true to what we've been
1:18 doing. It’s going to be all about
1:20 easy integration. We've done Alexa. We’ve done
1:24 Apple HomeKit™. We've got android support.
1:26 We’ve covered the bases and we're just
1:28 looking to expand on that and really
1:30 looking for the revolution to happen
1:32 this year in 2017. Number three, connected
1:35 vehicles. What you're seeing behind us
1:36 here is Ford's next generation in our
1:39 autonomous vehicle development.
1:40 That's the car that drives by itself.
1:42 That's our step towards getting to our
1:44 2021 goal of having a high-volume
1:47 rideshare service that is completely
1:49 autonomous. Well, CES 2017 is wrapping up.
1:54 It's been a fantastic show. Amazing
1:55 innovation and new technology from the
1:58 living room couch to the connected car.
1:59 We've seen it all.
2:01 Coming soon to a home near you. See you
2:03 next year.
