A smart house divided against itself cannot stand

There is a significant barrier to the Internet of Things. Current products are split by competing standards on the market, creating problems for the interoperability of devices in the home. The question is... who will come out on top? HomeKit, Brillo/Weave, AllJoyn, and OIC are all bursting out with big promises. This session will dive into the differences between these standards, picking apart their individual performances apart from the marketed platform. Manufacturers are dependent upon these standards as stages for the interoperability of their products. Our group is comprised of IoT executives who understand what it’s like to work with standards on getting a product out the door.
