Belkin Is on a Mission to Fix WeMo's Buggy Smart Home Software

By Stacey Higginbotham for Fortune:  The WeMo line of devices has been around since 2012, and has expanded gradually to include outlets, light switches, light bulbs, as well as a line of sensors that was shown at CES, the consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas last January but are still not out yet. However, WeMo products have a huge and glaring problem. The software running them is terrible. It has been beset by security issues, customer complaints, and generally can drive a user batty.
However, that’s about to change. Taylor said last week that the WeMo team has been focused on repairing the software and that in January WeMo’s users should expect an update. This means that daylights savings time won’t break all your schedules as sometimes happens. Or adding something to your Wi-Fi network won’t inexplicably confuse every WeMo device in the house. Or that one day your WeMo products will just decide that they no longer want to respond to their product names. Every WeMo user has a story, and like Tolstoy, every WeMo user is unhappy in their own way.  Cont'd...

Smart home solutions helped to drive double-digit growth in home security over past two years

A new Parks Associates report finds smart home offerings have helped revitalize the residential security industry, as the number of households with monitored security rose over 15% in the past two calendar years. The New Face of Home Security - 2015 Edition reports approximately 21 million U.S. homes have professionally monitored security, with another 1.5 million with monitoring in a second home. 
"By the end of 2015, nearly six million professionally monitored homes will also have smart home control as part of their security system," said Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates. "Smart home is firmly entrenched as part the U.S. security industry, thanks to both push and pull factors. Companies such as Vivint, AT&T, and ADT have been aggressive in offering smart home features with their systems, while security owners are open to new technologies. Security households are 150% more likely than non-security households to state that they keep up with technological innovations and like to own the latest devices."   Full Press Release.

ZigBee home automation design kits use RPi-based gateway

Eric Brown for  Silicon Labs unveiled reference designs for home automation and lighting networks, based on its ZigBee SoC and middleware plus a Raspberry Pi-based gateway.

Silicon Labs, which bills itself as the ZigBee market share leader, has integrated its ZigBee “Golden Unit” Home Automation (HA 1.2) software stack, “EM358x” ZigBee mesh networking SoC, and various ZigBee sensor and lighting technologies in several reference designs for home automation. The Dimmable Light Switch, Connected Lighting, Door/Window Contact Sensor reference designs work with a WiFi and Ethernet ready ZigBee Gateway Reference Design that runs Linux on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B SBC.
The “cost-effective” ZigBee reference designs are intended to reduce the complexity of connecting ZigBee devices, such as lights, dimmer switches, and door/window contact sensors. The Golden Unit ZigBee middleware, which connects all these gateways, enables LED lights to reliably join, interoperate, and detach from a mesh network, says Silicon Labs. The Golden Unit stack can scale from a few light nodes to hundreds on the same network, says Silicon Labs. Complete schematics, layout, and bill of materials (BOM) are offered for all reference designs.  Cont'd...

Dojo Is Designed To Protect Your Smart Home From Itself

Natasha Lomas for TechCrunch:  Israeli startup Dojo-Labs is launching out of stealth today after more than a year working on its connected home security device. No, not another Wi-Fi spy camera trying to engender a sense of vicarious paranoia in the buying public to convince folk with money to burn they need to ceaselessly surveil their property (and/or family).

Rather this startup has it eye on securing the connected smart home from the threat posed by, well, all the devices that comprise the connected smart home.

Dojo’s first (eponymous) device — available for pre-order now, with a shipping date of early March 2016 — aims to create a consumer-friendly security and control interface at the network layer that the company claims is capable of spotting and blocking anomalous behavior by connected devices on your home network. Whether that behavior is down to hackers trying to infiltrate your devices remotely. Or your devices trying to send your personal data somewhere they shouldn’t be, surreptitiously — perhaps by manufacturer design (hello smart TVs!).  Cont'd...
