Re: Standards
Standards are great because there are so many to choose from! (ok, not so much for smart homes)

You're so very right. Connecting tools and services from different vendors will help sell product to consumers. Easy to use can be easy to sell too.

Standards
Putting together standards is very important looking at where we are with this initiative. I belive there has been enough evolution already and there should be some information gathered , lessons learnt from various sources. All of that could be used as inputs for standards.

So true about back up. As I was responding for another post we can't rule out issues with network - be it wifi or mobile.

Backups and work arounds
I agree voice an integration will be key for smart home adoption, however I think there needs to be a level of backup for smart homes that makes consumers feel that they will have a work around if there is a Wi-Fi outage power failure or other issue that impacts connectivity.
