Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG  ) Nest thermostat and ADT's  (NYSE: ADT  ) home-security systems are two of the biggest names in the connected-home arena, but they are far from the only ones. Heck, there's a whole conference dedicated to the market.

At the heart of their discussion is whether the well-established home automation and security market should fear the wave of new entrants like Nest, Dropcam, and SmartThings, or whether consumers will favor companies that offer professionally installed services like ADT or large telecom companies.

Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.
