  • 1. Building Automation Ecosystem DIEM-BA Tivit Business Seminar 12.4.2011 Mikael Latvala CTO There Corporation
  • 2. Problems in Current Home Automation Systems1. Home control systems are too complicated and/or cumbersome – High learning curve  products made to engineers by engineers – Small displays and buttons – Bad documentation2. Too many communication technologies – Zwave, X-10, LonWorks, CEBus, ZigBee, M-bus, BACnet, I-wire, KNX, Bluetooth, etc. – No interoperability between technologies3. Too many brains to control single house – How many different control nodes one needs or can learn to use4. One-size-fits-all solution – Home owner must pay for features that he is not going to use – Very expensive solution5. Too many industry consortiums to define the semantics – UPnP, IGRS, DLNA, SPIA, Home Gateway Initiative, NMRP, etc.6. No inexpensive solution to add intelligence to devices – BOM is critical when targeting mass market
