How to Automate?

ConnectHome is a national dealer network for the design, sales and installation of residential automation, entertainment and networking systems. The network was formed with the idea that homeowners should be able to easily find a qualified systems integrator that they can trust with their homes.

SmartOne Home Control System

"The system features Distributed Control rather than conventional Central Control. The difference here is that the SmartOne devices contain enough intelligence to store their own configuration and functions so that if a system controller fails, the devices will continue to operate as programmed. For example if the lighting control panel fails, the switches will continue to operate according to their individual groupings etc."

Home Plug & Play

A solid data model for interoperability must be presented to this community before we will realize the growth potential we have. Interoperability must not only exist between our home products and us, it must also exist between the products themselves; each product enhancing the feature set and functionality of the other.

Home Tool Pro

"As we start to get into this system the first thing to notice is that, unlike X-10, each device must be defined by entering it's serial number and we don't get a choice of the device code (or Unit Address). That's because the CEBus system takes care of addressing for you. The serial number identifies the device and the system finds it and assigns the address. "

Primer on CEBus's Common Application Language (CAL)

"Now that you have this home network defined, take a moment to realize that your iron, security system, garage-door opener, front porch light, ceiling fan, television and master bedroom alarm clock radio can now freely pass information back and forth amongst themselves. Part of our challenge is to identify what (if anything) one of these devices might want to 'say' to the others and why the others would care to 'listen'."

Interoperable Control Systems

"The LonPoint System includes a family of interface modules that provide various combinations of digital or analog inputs and outputs along with numerous software function blocks, allowing seamless connectivity to legacy field devices and to LonMark devices."
