Cost-cutting?

I'm going to take the guess that the home automation market is ripe for protocol consolidation as many of the parties currently offering solutions look at their sales figures and wonder whether they could somehow eliminate those pesky development costs, as the whole departments aren't exactly money spinners. Even smart watches seem to be enjoying better adoption.

Not that it helped much with home automation's most obvious immediate predecessor, 3d TV.
