The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), LonMark® International, and the UPnP® Forum are collaborating on new CEA initiative to help standardize interoperability for the IoT. CEA is looking for participants for collaboration. 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.
