The Future Of Security Monitoring And Home Automation?

The classic approach for consumers wanting these services is to pay fairly sizeable monthly fees. Those fees are increasing as large providers add more services / options.

On the other hand, smaller new entrants are offering lower cost, self serve options that leverage the power of mobile Internet and smartphones.

What do you think will happen here? Will consumers largely shift / upgrade to these higher cost, more sophisticated packages or will we see a significant shift to new entrants that can disrupt these traditional offerings?
