It is not just google

I am an automation installer at a company in London called AVITHA, I have been closely monitoring how big companies are pushing forward leaving home automation giants like Control4 and Crestron behind.

Apple, Amazon, Google all these big companies have invested heavily in the automation industry and in the future they will battle each other for the market share, it is hard to tell who will win the majority. We cannot just blindly bet on Google as you know they have officially lost the social media battle last week. Mature companies like Crestron and control4 lacks only one thing and that is lack of an ecosystem. I personally think Apple has the better chance. Automation installers like myself will soon have to adapt to this changing environment.

My biggest worry is that, Google will open the door for cheap IoT devices in its automation system. This will create a huge problem for global IoT security.
