One of the most ambitious residential projects in Spain is the Altos del Hipódromo Neighborhood in which all 48 homes and private social club are automated, monitored, and centrally and remotely controlled. The client wanted to integrate all the various subsystems such as lighting, blinds, HVAC, heated floors, access control, intrusion and technical alarms in each of the homes and social club as well as incorporate street lighting control that could be scheduled and controlled by sunlight intensity level. The ultimate goal is for the entire neighborhood to be connected to a central supervision station where the security personnel can manage all the home alarms and each home featured an intuitive HMI where users could watch and control all the subsystems of the house.

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), LonMark® International, and the UPnP® Forum are collaborating on new CEA initiative to help standardize interoperability for the IoT. Together work is in process to develop an interoperability lexicon establishing device descriptors, or as LonMark calls them "profiles" to help foster greater vendor interoperability. Building the lexicon is the first step toward the development of a standard for XML device descriptions. CEA is seeking input from LonMark’s members to build upon the CEA 709.6 (LonMark Profiles, SNVTs, SCPTs, Enum Types, SPID) standard to create a lexicon for home automation interoperability.

For those of you who have tried to create a smart home or develop an app with devices with multiple vendors, networks and protocols, you know how difficult it is. If all the devices come from a single vendor they probably work well together. If all the devices use the same protocol they may be interoperable as long as the manufacturer hasn’t added a feature that was not already standardized by the protocol developers. Unfortunately, most consumers buy individual products or systems and only later try to tie them together to create a smart home. That’s a challenge even for a professional installer and nearly impossible for the average consumer. In recognition of the problem, and in its role as a leader in consumer electronics standards, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has begun a new effort to simplify the task.
