Apple, Inc. Just Gained Another Competitor in the Smart Home Space
Companies are starting to pick sides in the home automation race, and Sony just made its choice. The company announced at the IFA conference in Berlin this week that it is joining Qualcomm 's AllSeen Alliance, a coalition of tech and consumer companies utilizing Qualcomm's open-source AllJoyn home automation platform.
Qualcomm has collected an impressive group of peers for its home automation platform, including Microsoft , LG, Panasonic , Haier, Sharp , and about 60 other companies. And while Sony's move won't derail Apple's HomeKit plans , the growing number of companies joining the AllJoyn proves just how heated this competition is becoming.
AllJoyn -- like many other open-source home automation platforms -- enables third-party devices to easily connect to each other, communicate with other devices, and pair together for combined automation.
