Dave Rye @ X10

X10 has changed a lot over the years and I've grown with it. I was 23 years old when I joined Pico and that was 25 years ago. I've spent more than ½ my life with X10! It's been a fun 25 years and I'm looking forward to what the future brings.

CEBus Design

The software development must first begin by deciding how to implement the CEBus/Home Plug & PlayTM protocol stack. Two options exist here: the developer can either write the stack themselves, which is a long and arduous process taking several man-years, or purchase a tool that integrates the protocol stack with their code.

Home API : Innovations in Home Automation Integration

Recently, the growth in the number of home automation standards has made integrating products from different manufactures and network protocols difficult if not virtually impossible. Home API will provide a common layer of functionality above present and future network protocols, lessening integration problems.

HomeAPI Group Interview

Home API allows a software developer an easy way to discover controllable devices in the home, the control attributes of the devices (on/off, volume up/down, channel, time, temperature, status, etc.), and the current state of the device, and it provides the ability to modify or change the state of the device.

HomeRF Wireless

SWAP defines a common interface specification that supports wireless voice and data services in the home. It was designed to operate with the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and the Internet.

HA Standards

"Consumers are willing to buy reasonably priced solutions as long as there is no danger that their purchase will become obsolete i.e. there is a standard. Manufacturers also need standards before making the large investments necessary for low cost production. An ideal standard will allow developers to differentiate their products with features and include the flexibility to evolve over time according to the needs of the market."

INTRODUCTION TO THE SMART HOUSE® SYSTEM

"The fundamental goal of SMART HOUSE is to provide integrated wiring for all current home services and to include provisions for home automation technology. Cost savings are promised from reduced labor to install an integrated wiring system.

X-10 Myths & Realities

"Myth: X-10 can't transmit analog data. / Reality: X-10 currently has systems installed (which X-10 developed for Honeywell) employing PLC transmission of both temperature and light levels transmitted using X-10 protocols after A to D conversion."
