Bridging the Devices Inside and Outside the Home

Harmonizing the disparate devices in the home and making it simple for service providers to be the IT manager of consumers’ home networks is what Melissa Simpler of Affinegy discusses in this interview at the Smart Energy Summit. She explains how the TR-069 standard and its Auto Configuration Server (ACS) reaches beyond the home and into the mobile world bridging the work and home environments. Given her experience, it is appropriate that Simpler was recently appointed as Vice Chair of the Connected Home Council of CABA, “an international not-for-profit industry association dedicated to the advancement of intelligent home and intelligent building technologies.”
