Summary

Table of Contents

Interoperability between devices is imperative. Consumers expect it. Value-added services require it. Business interests, however, often impede it. This report outlines the importance of interoperability, the different technologies used by each player in the smart home, and how interoperability solutions are shaping the future of the smart home.

1.0 Introduction
Home networks are one of the key building blocks that enable today’s smart home systems. As new protocols and interoperability frameworks enter the market, competing for adoption, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and smart home service providers must decide which protocols or alternative technologies will best enable expansion of their product and service capabilities. The technical merits of each of the protocols, while important, are just one point of consideration. In many cases, the business implications of selecting a home network technology define the limits and future potential of each player in the value chain and, therefore, play a much more important role in a manufacturer or service provider’s decision process. Smart products and smart home systems are disruptive elements in the connected home marketplace.

The ability of disparate products to interoperate in the home – that is, to share data, and to take coordinated action -- plays a key role in determining the winners and losers in the smart home. Connectivity opens the
door to dozens, if not dozens of dozens, of new value propositions for products, making interoperability not just an important differentiator, but a requirement for survival. The business objectives of the many players in the smart home are often not aligned. Understanding the primary business goals and how different technology choices support different business goals is essential to evaluating the relative strengths and weaknesses of wireless home network technologies. This report evaluates interoperability from the perspective of home control and monitoring applications. It addresses the current state of interoperability between home area network technologies and cloud-based solutions; and how those technologies will evolve over time. The report assesses the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities awaiting both smart device makers and smart system platform vendors.
