How Will Data Communications Protocols Make Smart Devices More User-Friendly And Work Better Together?
Since the success of the smart home depends on data communication, all the smart gadgets in the network should be able to communicate with each other. Though it sounds easy, it actually is quite a challenge thanks to the lack of smart home data communication standards.
When the smart devices produced by different companies speak even slightly different languages, it becomes difficult for them to communicate with each other. To make it work, some consumers try to stick to one brand. Smart home data communication standards would go a long way in empowering the users by combining different brands and supporting innovations.
Another issue is that if the installation is too difficult, it will not see widespread adoption.
Industry experts should find the lowest common denominator among devices on the market to establish a new or modified common language that devices from different brand ecosystems can use to communicate with each other and execute tasks in tandem. In addition, the standards should establish a suite of common security protocols to ensure that there are no cybersecurity holes within or between ecosystems.
New devices and brand should follow these protocols in order to be able to enter the mainstream IoT market. It would be very user-friendly when a smart device of any brand could easily become part of a network without hassle.
