About Agora :
The 'Agora du Réseau Domiciliaire', or 'Smart Home Agora' is an association bringing together a number of key players around the yet-to-be-opened smart home market to help opening up this market. Agora has published a "rainbow book", which states a first list of principles, and plans its future activity.
In a practical way, the Agora proposes three steps to build up on this. Present a first shared solution based upon 2012 existing technology, products and services "the demonstrator", having a better solution breaking some of the barriers between the 'silos' by 2015 with "domocompatible" concept and a fully open solution by 2020.
