Smart homes are becoming more important than ever, but they’re also going to become more complicated.
They’re going to need to support more devices and more types of technology, and they’re going get more expensive.
And the smart home isn’t going to be enough, according to a recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The report noted that smart home standards will need to be standardized, and that “there will be a need for standardized solutions to address more than one component of the smart house.”
The report says that the smart device standards are “not yet well defined” and that there are “significant challenges” in designing smart home devices that are both easy to set up and easy to maintain.
“The development of smart devices is moving from being a hobby or hobby project to being a core component of our day-to-day lives,” the report states.
“It’s a bit like the movie ‘The Matrix,’ which is an amazing film that has been around for a long time, but the technology has been refined, and it’s been built for a specific purpose.”
The new report recommends that smart device makers “consider incorporating a more standardized set of specifications for the device that will support the requirements of a large number of different smart home applications.”
For instance, it suggests that a smart home would need to implement a “general purpose interface,” such as a “headless smart TV,” or “smart speakers,” or some combination of these.
“A smart home needs to support many different types of smart features,” the study says.
“Smart devices need to have multiple components to make them work.
There needs to be a built-in smart camera or sensor, an app that allows users to control the smart cameras, and a third party that can integrate the sensor, camera, and the app together.”
The Smart Home Association, an industry group representing the smart devices industry, said in a statement that the report was “incorrect” and suggested that the industry “is not ready for a universal smart home standard.”
The association said that the “smart home” standard will be developed by the Smart Device Manufacturers Association, a non-profit group that “serves as the de facto body responsible for the smart technology and smart home development.”
The group said it “believes that the current smart home design standards and technologies can be developed, standardized, integrated, and tested on a global basis, including the use of open standards for standards and interoperability, which will lead to more interoperability.”
The smart home association said it supports the Smart House Association’s efforts to create a standard for smart home technologies.
“While we do not support a universal Smart Home Standard, we are committed to working with manufacturers to establish a global standard for the design and operation of smart home systems,” the statement said.
