Home Connectivity Alliance meets in Prague for first Global Interoperability Workshop
  • When: June 28-30, 2022
  • Where: Prague, Czech Republic
  • What: HCA Global Interoperability Workshop

Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA) held its first global interoperability workshop in Prague, Czech Republic on June 28-30. The three-day event was a hybrid event, with technical workgroup members from all companies attending in-person as well as virtually. HCA’s overall technical work group is led by Electrolux and composed on three task forces – Data Models, API and Cybersecurity – led by different member companies. They work in a fast paced, start-up like approach to development, focusing on the experiences enabled through C2C (cloud to cloud) integration. This is possible because they leverage existing C2C connectivity, which helps HCA members to address the large number of legacy smart appliances already in the market, something that is crucial for the long-life device category. Through this workshop, HCA was able to see their hard work over the past few months come to life when multiple brands of apps started to control multiple brands of appliances, HVAC systems, and TVs. HCA plans to reveal more at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin on Sept. 2-6, including details of commercialization dates and HCA’s plans for innovation beyond interoperability.
