Smart home technology is here and is increasing penetration into consumer’s homes day-by-day but, as with any technology, standards and protocols matter.
For the past 15 years or so, technology companies have sought to develop software solutions that enable the use of Internet protocol (IP) for wireless sensor networks and other connected devices that leverage Internet connectivity. As a result several means of connectivity and networking have emerged that are making their way into smart home solutions including ZigBee and 6LoWPAN.
