This report continues the Practel project on the Smart Grid development and evolution. In particular, it is detailing technological and marketing characteristics and applications for wireline and wireless ICT (Information and Communications Technologies) in the Smart Houses environments.

With each year, Smart Houses communications technologies are becoming more and more affordable and efficient on the industry-wide scale for multiple applications; though the concept was originated in the 80th of the last Century. The importance of Smart Houses proliferation is now tied up with the Smart Grid deployments, and Smart Houses communications networks will eventually be a part of a large country-wide project, such as centralized and intelligent automation system, which integrates utilities and consumers.

As per the report discussion, within the home, multiple technologies target the transport layer of the home-area network in order to carry out home automation. These include wireless technologies such as ZigBee, Z-wave, Bluetooth, and DECT and other; as well as wireline technologies such as power-line transport (e.g., HomePlug) and coax/wire-based (e.g., MoCA, HPNA) technologies. The fact that so many wireline and wireless technologies are targeting home automation indicates that this market is just scratching the surface in terms of potential, and there are no clear 'winners' as of yet.

The report provides the analysis of wireless ICT (Z-wave, ZigBee/IEEE802.15.4, DECT, and Bluetooth); and wireline technologies (HomePlug, HomePNA, G.hn, MoCA); and respective markets.

The emphasis is made on applications of these technologies for HANs (Home Area Networks) in the Smart Houses environment.

The report also addresses the Smart Appliances initiatives, related technologies and markets and the role of Smart Meters in the evolving Smart Houses development.

The U.S. market for ICT in Smart Houses (with a base of private houses reaching more than 100 million) is huge; it also has support of the government, which is involved in the Smart Grid project.

Research Methodology

Considerable research was done using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed. Evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.

The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.
