The AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry collaboration to advance the Internet of Everything through the AllJoyn open source software project, announced the Home Appliances and Entertainment (HAE) Service Framework, a standard AllJoyn-based interface for controlling and monitoring smart appliances and entertainment devices in the home. The HAE Service Framework is an output of the AllSeen Alliance’s Smart Spaces Working Group, one of six working groups dedicated to advancing AllJoyn by focusing on critical, horizontal areas of the Internet of Things (IoT). Major contributors to the HAE Service Framework include Electrolux, Haier, Honeywell, LG Electronics, Lowe’s, Panasonic, Sharp and Sony. These members have identified a minimum set of operations across devices to enable control and monitoring capabilities regardless of vendor. The HAE Service Framework will allow devices such as air conditioners, air purifiers, air quality monitors, ovens, refrigerators, robot vacuums, washers and TVs to be controlled by a common set of interfaces so that users can achieve a seamless and uniform experience across manufacturer and brand of their home appliances or devices.
