It is easy to see how a home can become cluttered with so many different systems. Smart lighting by Philips, a Samsung camera system, a smart doorbell made by Amazon, Google’s voice assistant, a connected scale produced by Nokia and an Apple smart TV – each of which has its own apps and operating system!
The search for a universal system
The market is fragmented at the moment. Every producer is developing their own system in the hope of winning and retaining the customer’s loyalty. A single universal system to which you can connect all your smart devices does not exist yet – but we expect it will in the future. For example, various apps and web applications that can combine different systems are already being developed. A great example is If This Then That, a website that can easily connect different apps and devices.
