Re: Best home automation standard...

Interoperability is a concern for me too.

Way back in the day when 56k was considered speedy, we installed a lot of remote controlled light switches that worked through the power system. On the remotes you'd have to hit something like D15 to for the unit you wanted to turn on/off, dim, etc.

It was good enough.

Now I just installed a Nest. Reports and data look good from what I've seen on the site and on a friends unit but it made me ask the fundamental question, how many sites/apps do I want to use to monitor all this stuff and what if I wanted to to easily compare A to B?

Home automation will be a huge market and I think we'll see more synergy in this area going forward but I wish we had it today.
