SmartHouse Code of Practice

The SmartHouse Code of Practice is a document that provides a .system designer. working to implement a SmartHouse (to be used as dwelling and as a home office) with a source of information on sensible and pragmatic guidelines for the design, installation and maintenance of SmartHouse systems and the services and applications provided. It is recognised also that providers and installers must work within diverse regulatory environments and must be free to make choices appropriate to their business objectives (which in relation to this document focus on meeting the needs of domestic and small-office users, not large-scale commercial premises). Therefore, we consider standards as enablers and leave prescriptive aspects to local regulation. SmartHouse includes the digital home, intelligent home, connected home, networked home. SmartHouse includes any .smart. activity, service or application in the SmartHouse including any form of .office. or working environment in the SmartHouse (but the smart office in commercial premises is excluded). SmartHouse covers any residential premises where people live (e.g. house or apartment) but excludes commercial and institutional premises (such as hotels or prisons and other commercial dwellings where the day to day management of the accommodation is not controlled by the resident.). SmartHouse includes consideration of the interface with the consumer (customer, subscriber, end user) and the consumer.s needs. The aim is to provide a useful reference document to ensure that the user may exploit the benefits of a consistent system architecture by utilising European and International Standards and other generally accepted specifications in the design of the Smart House system. This document delivers a route to investment synergies, flexibility of services and useful and usable applications that satisfy the individual consumer.s needs and requirements. There are many stakeholders in the SmartHouse, each with their own viewpoint and interests. Rather than try to provide a document that covers all the viewpoints, it was decided to write this Code of Practice as a guide for the System Designer of systems, applications and services in and into the SmartHouse. The interests of all the stakeholders overlap in the System Design of the SmartHouse. CWA 50487:2005;10;The design and implementation of systems, services, applications and products requires detailed information about:;consumer needs and expectations;;user interfaces;;security;;the performance of both the wide area and local networks;;the kinds of applications and services to be used;;the equipment using it;the principles of systems architecture;and how the system and its components are installed, operated, maintained and used. This Code of Practice provides a resource for the practitioner of the SmartHouse and covers information and issues that surround the choices to be made as well as providing a route map for the designer of systems in the SmartHouse. In short, the c onsumer must want or need the service or application, must be able to use it and have it delivered within a SmartHouse system that is installed so that it works effectively and seamlessly with the other systems and components in the SmartHouse. Any service, application or device in the SmartHouse should also be simple to use, easy and intuitive to operate and allow additional applications and services to be added retrospectively. This Code of Practice is therefore subdivided into sections addressing the environment in which the system designer is working and the requirements of the actors in that environment in order to place into context the decisions and constraints the System Designer must make. The CENELEC SmartHouse Code of Practice covers the full range of stakeholders involved in the SmartHouse. Thus as Figure 1.1 below shows, the CoP ranges from the Service provider to the Consumer and takes in all the activities in between that allow services and applications to be delivered.

Preface

This Code of Practice is intended to provide a valuable reference for anyone involved in creating a

SmartHouse, a house that has intelligent systems, intelligent equipment and networks and has

services and applications that use the SmartHouse intelligence.

It has been put together from the efforts of a large number of industry experts. In order to cope with

the very broad scope of the Code of Practice and the many stakeholders that were involved, it was

seen as desirable that the document should be subdivided into Sections each of which covers a

particular market segment in the service supply chain of services and applications to and within the

SmartHouse.

Each Section has been constructed by a Section Editor who is an expert in the area of the section and

overall editing and management of the project has been the task of an overall Managing Editor. Each

Section Editor has had the assistance of a dedicated group of experts and around 160 experts have

been involved in these working groups. Overall, there have been 4 Open Forums/Workshops attended

by an average of 65 Experts for the first 3. Some 325 experts have been involved in the review

process. The 10 section editors have worked incredibly hard with their experts to deliver the current

text. The time recorded by the experts now adds up to more than 600 man days.

There have been numerous disagreements as to what should be in the text and what left out. These

have been resolved although some hard decisions have had to be made. There is now agreement on

the text and all the comments received have been resolved and put into the document

Because there is significant variability in the scope of the sections, some sections deal with hard

physical facts whereas some deal with the objectives and needs of stakeholders such as the

consumer and the service provider. Other sections deal with entities where the market is still evolving

and therefore the hard physical facts are not readily available. Therefore, while there has been

considerable attention to ensuring consistency, there are areas where there is overlap, because the

sections lie side by side on the service supply chain, and some sections look at similar issues from

different perspectives.

An example of this is the way in which we have used the term “cluster”. In each section where it is

used it describes a broadly market segment grouping but is used in a slightly different way and

although the market segments are broadly similar, in some sections the market segments are sliced

more thinly.

Overall, it is considered that this document will provide a most helpful document for the stakeholder of

the SmartHouse market. It is hoped that the Code of Practice will bring understanding of the issues

and in particular allow the system designer of the SmartHouse to work more effectively and with more

understanding of the wider issues.

As managing editor, I would like to thank all the section editors and their teams of experts for the help

and support they have given me in putting this Code of Practice together.

The document has been approved unanimously by experts in a CENELEC Workshop and by experts

from previous workshops who have reviewed the document and indicated their approval by mail

(See E.1). The Chairperson (Stephen Pattenden) accordingly decided that consensus had now been

reached and the document should be adopted as a CENELEC Workshop Agreement.

1 Scope & introduction
1.1 The SmartHouse and its components

The SmartHouse consists of a large and wide ranging set of many Services, Applications, Equipment,

Networks and Systems that act together in delivering the “intelligent” or “connected” home in order to

address security and control, communications, leisure and comfort, environmental integration and

accessibility. These components are represented by many actors that interact and work together to

provide interoperable systems that benefit the home based user in the SmartHouse. Because of this

wide ranging variability of the entities in the SmartHouse, there is a very high level of potential

complexity in finding the optimal solution for any particular SmartHouse.

The main actors that influence the SmartHouse are the consumers (customers, subscribers,

individuals) that live in and utilise the Services, Applications and Products that are designed for the

SmartHouse. It is therefore appropriate that the other main set of actors are the service and

application providers that deliver the services that the consumers need and require, including those

responsible for installing systems in the SmartHouse and for maintaining them.

These consumers have needs and requirements in many areas and these are described in the

Section on Consumers. Likewise the aims and objectives of the Service Providers in fulfilling

consumer needs are described in the section on Service Providers. The installer also has to fulfil

consumer needs and the Installation Process is described in the section on Installation.

1.1.1 Scope of the SmartHouse Code of Practice

The SmartHouse Code of Practice is a document that provides a “system designer” working to

implement a SmartHouse (to be used as dwelling and as a home office) with a source of information

on sensible and pragmatic guidelines for the design, installation and maintenance of SmartHouse

systems and the services and applications provided.

It is recognised also that providers and installers must work within diverse regulatory environments

and must be free to make choices appropriate to their business objectives (which in relation to this

document focus on meeting the needs of domestic and small-office users, not large-scale commercial

premises). Therefore, we consider standards as enablers and leave prescriptive aspects to local

regulation.

SmartHouse includes the digital home, intelligent home, connected home, networked home.

SmartHouse includes any “smart” activity, service or application in the SmartHouse including any form

of “office” or working environment in the SmartHouse (but the smart office in commercial premises is

excluded). SmartHouse covers any residential premises where people live (e.g. house or apartment)

but excludes commercial and institutional premises (such as hotels or prisons and other commercial

dwellings where the day to day management of the accommodation is not controlled by the resident.).

SmartHouse includes consideration of the interface with the consumer (customer, subscriber, end

user) and the consumer’s needs.

The aim is to provide a useful reference document to ensure that the user may exploit the benefits of a

consistent system architecture by utilising European and International Standards and other generally

accepted specifications in the design of the Smart House system. This document delivers a route to

investment synergies, flexibility of services and useful and usable applications that satisfy the

individual consumer’s needs and requirements.

There are many stakeholders in the SmartHouse, each with their own viewpoint and interests. Rather

than try to provide a document that covers all the viewpoints, it was decided to write this Code of

Practice as a guide for the System Designer of systems, applications and services in and into the

SmartHouse. The interests of all the stakeholders overlap in the System Design of the SmartHouse.

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
CWA 50487:2005 - 10 -

The design and implementation of systems, services, applications and products requires detailed

information about:
- consumer needs and expectations;
- user interfaces;
- security;
- the performance of both the wide area and local networks;
- the kinds of applications and services to be used;
- the equipment using it
- the principles of systems architecture

- and how the system and its components are installed, operated, maintained and used.

This Code of Practice provides a resource for the practitioner of the SmartHouse and covers

information and issues that surround the choices to be made as well as providing a route map for the

designer of systems in the SmartHouse. In short, the consumer must want or need the service or

application, must be able to use it and have it delivered within a SmartHouse system that is installed

so that it works effectively and seamlessly with the other systems and components in the SmartHouse.

Any service, application or device in the SmartHouse should also be simple to use, easy and intuitive

to operate and allow additional applications and services to be added retrospectively. This Code of

Practice is therefore subdivided into sections addressing the environment in which the system

designer is working and the requirements of the actors in that environment in order to place into

context the decisions and constraints the System Designer must make.

The CENELEC SmartHouse Code of Practice covers the full range of stakeholders involved in the

SmartHouse. Thus as Figure 1.1 below shows, the CoP ranges from the Service provider to the

Consumer and takes in all the activities in between that allow services and applications to be delivered

to end users including the installation, maintenance and management of the SmartHouse. Although

the sections and stakeholders in the SmartHouse are shown as separate entities, thes are not

mutually exclusive and any organisation properly qualified may undertake multiple roles in The

SmartHouse.
