title The next level: the best way to watch TV and the Internet source Fortune article The next big step for the TV industry is the Internet of Things, according to the world’s leading makers of devices, which will change the way we interact with devices, such as televisions, computers, and even appliances.
The IoT devices that are designed to interact with the Internet will help consumers connect with the things that matter most, such at the supermarket checkout, the doctor’s office, or even their phones.
“The Internet of things is about connecting all the things,” said Tim Haines, senior vice president of the Nielsen TV Research Group.
But it won’t just be TV that is going to change the TV experience. “
These things are going to be the things people want to connect to, and the TV is the one place where we’re not going to have that ability.”
But it won’t just be TV that is going to change the TV experience.
The future of the TV and home theater market will also involve the Internet and smart appliances.
That means, for example, TVs and computers that can be controlled from a smart home that uses Google Home and other smart-home devices.
This is the future of entertainment, with smart speakers, the smart refrigerator, smart speakers for home automation, smart thermostats, and other gadgets.
“We are now at the beginning of the IoT era,” Hain, who is in his early 50s, told me.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had a full generation of the Internet going in the home.”
And that’s when the TV, the Internet, and smart home devices are going head to head, as they will compete for the home entertainment and media consumers, Hain said.
In this scenario, the home theater and home television industry is likely to dominate the market, said Robert W. Kuznetsov, president and CEO of Kuznets Group, a global technology consulting firm.
“It’s the next wave in home entertainment,” he said.
The biggest disruption will be in the way home theater systems interact with other devices in the house.
For example, an app will tell a TV the current time, and a TV will then set up an alarm.
The apps can then ask for a preset time for when it’s safe to wake the family up, so a family can still watch TV or sleep.
But the biggest change is likely going to come from the home automation industry, which is going after the next big home theater players, said Michael Pritchard, senior director of the research and analytics firm Forrester Research.
The smart home industry is looking at new ways to control appliances.
“In the next five to 10 years, smart appliances are going take over the home,” he told me, noting that smart appliances can now control the thermostat, air conditioner, lighting, security cameras, security locks, thermostatic timers, and more.
These new appliances will offer the ability to control everything from a television to a car.
“People have always wanted a home that was connected to everything,” he continued.
“But now we can connect the whole house.”
The IoT is also about bringing together disparate technologies, said Hain.
The Internet of Everything is about being able to control every aspect of your life from your refrigerator to your TV, said Mark Zappala, a partner at K&L Gates.
The next wave of home entertainment, for instance, is likely not going be connected TVs.
“Most of the things we want to do in the future are going be from the Internet,” he explained.
“When we’re connected, that’s where we will be able to have everything.”
For example: Smart TVs are going from TVs to smart speakers.
Smart refrigerators and air conditioners are going away from refrigerators to air conditioning.
Smart TVs and other appliances are not going away, either.
They will become more connected to other devices, but they are also going to evolve to integrate with the rest of the home, Zappa said.
“Things that were connected to the refrigerator are going out to smart refrigerators,” he added.
“Smart air conditionators are going in to smart air conditionings.
The appliances that are going into smart appliances will be connected to smart things.”
That’s where the IoT will come in.
The devices are also likely to evolve into smart lighting.
“With smart lighting, you’re going to need smart devices that can read the light, and you’re also going with smart things that can communicate with each other,” Zappanasaid.
“That means there will be smart things, like smart speakers.”
This means a smart refrigerator is going into a smart speaker, and appliances that control a smart TV, smart home automation systems, or smart refrigeration systems will be interacting with the appliances, Hinnas said.
This makes sense, because we already have the Internet connected into all the devices we use, and connected to our
