Research Firm Highlights Need for Standardization in Home Automation Market

According to research performed by Parks Associates (PA), serious home automation customers place a high value on device interoperability. Currently, it appears the only way that happens in practice is to purchase all devices and appliances that you want to automate from the same vendor. Although the industry speaks more about standardization, it has yet to materialize among appliances.

PA found that three-fifths of home automation customers who have purchased three devices felt, “it is very important for devices to work together as part of a system”. This is understandable, because it allows consumers to pick and choose the devices they feel are best for their system.
