One only need walk into a Lowe’s or Home Depot to see what is happening in the Smart Home and Smart Office business segments. Formally stand-alone devices and systems–from heating and air conditioning, to smoke and CO alarms, security systems, kitchen appliances, washers and dryers, and water heaters and water softeners–are all getting linked together via a PC, smart phone or other connected device. Electric utilities not only supply the power, but “smart meters” report and monitor energy use, and the newest Smart Home network includes back-up power systems, solar panel installations, net metering, and other emerging technologies.
