Connect Home over IP is an open - source and royalty - free Project that focuses on Home automation connectivity standards. It will work on compatibility of various smart homes and internet of things products and software. The project was first introduced by Amazon, Apple, Google, Zigbee Alliance in December 2019. The project aims to simplify development for manufacturers and provide a smooth experience for consumers. In simple terms, Amazon, Apple, and Google want their smart Home products to be compatible with each other, while still being secure and able to provide a great user experience. The protocol will be ready by the end of 2020. Zigbee is a power - efficient and cost - efficient wireless network standard. It is applicable in battery - operate devices which feature wireless control and monitoring applications. Three of the leading software and technology companies in the world, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Zigbee Alliance have decided to work together to produce a network standard for smart Home products. Why does unified smart Home connectivity standard make totally business sense? The Emergence of unified connectivity standards will increase the value of smart home ecosystems in the eyes of both consumers and developers. It will help the market to be more acceptable towards smart home appliances. Below are reasons why unified smart Home connectivity standard will be responsible for market growth. 1 development of smart home devices will become much more comfortable and practical for developers. A universal standard will result in reasonable pricing and efficiency of development process because device makers will have to consider only one standard while manufacturing. Easier development processes may attract device makers. It will not only lead to variety in the range of devices but also increase the number of devices on the market. 2 increase in user compatibility will encourage consumers to buy smart home devices. Consumers will be free from the common fear of not having compatibility between various smart home devices. Since the device will be compatible with the smart Home ecosystem of consumer,ss there wo be any hesitation while buying from consumers. Moreover, fundamental of the project is to maintain security while providing compatibility. Although mart Home devices will have compatibility, they will also have some base level of protection. It will relive consumers from smart Home data hacking and privacy issues. The project will enable device manufacturers to develop devices that support and work with smart Home and voice services like Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Google Assistant, etc. Project Home connect over IP has invited all device manufacturers, silicon providers, and developers from the smart Home industry to participate in standards and contribute as well. Project connect Home over IP has the aim to make device development simple for manufacturers. And it is also intended to soothe user compatibility. Such unified smart Home connectivity stands will undoubtedly accentuate market growth. It is because developers will be easily able to make devices.

Background

As mentioned above, connecting Home Over IP involves all big smart Home companies coming together and agreeing a standard way for their devices to speak to each other. This means that as long as everyone follows this new standard properly, we can buy smart devices from a range of different companies and theyll all work seamlessly together. This will be a big improvement on the current situation, where some devices support Alexa, some support Google, some are Z - Wave only, etc etc. Connect Home Over IP is technically in competition with W3Cs Web of Things Project, however CHIP is backed by all major smart Home players and so I guess that this new standard will be the main smart Home standard. If this standard doesnt work out well, well be stick with your current position which is that if you have dozens of smart Home devices, youll probably need to buy a proprietary smart Home hub which supports WiFi, Bluetooth LE, ZigBee, Z - Wave, Kidde, Lutron ClearConnect and all other smart Home standards - otherwise managing your smart Home can be frustrating.

CHIP Wont Replace Your Interface

Chip has two goals. First, it wants to make manufacturing secure and cross - compatible Smart devices easier. Second, it wants to make smart devices more accessible to consumers. That means most of the work will be in the background. Just like you pay attention to how your car engine work, or how your Wi - Fi network works, you wo pay attention to how your Smart lock communicates with your Smart blinds. Since all that work is in the background, your Interface wo change. If you use Google Home or Alexa to control your smart devices, you continue as you always have with no real noticeable difference in experience. Chip promises that creation of this standard wo break your current devices, even as you start to acquire new Smart Home gadgets that are CHIP - enable. That should help reduce adoption pains.
