“The strength of the DECT ULE home automation solutions is its alignment with the telecom operator interest. Telecom and cable operators would prefer to eliminate the additional cost of the separate box and integrate the home automation gateway and controller into the home router. In addition, operators prefer to have most of the software that is currently in the home control gateway moved to the cloud so that the combined box moves more toward a simple pass through device. The DECT solution, which is already integrated into many gateways, is designed to address these needs”.
