While smart home devices have grown rapidly throughout the past decade, a recent report from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) suggests that 2021 may be a relative down year for these technologies, with flat revenues and just 11-percent growth in unit sales.

He notes that his Alexa-enabled smart blinds have failed to roll down at their scheduled time, that his smart thermostat has gotten stuck on the same temperature on several occasions and that “every Echo speaker owner has experienced Alexa playing the wrong music at least once.”
