P1888.4 - Green Smart Home and Residential Quarter Control Network Protocol

The traditional concept of using an industrial field bus for building automation is an idea from the industrial age. As we move towards a green and smarter planet, this concept should be changed. Homes and residential quarters of the future will be green, smarter, and comfortable. To realize ubiquitous green energy conservation for homes and residential quarters, the convenience of digital measurements and controls needs to be integrated with computers, software, and the Internet to create smart homes and residential quarters. This standard aims to provide communication protocols and collaborating management solutions for green community control networks, and it specifies the definition and data structure between field equipment, sensors, actuators, equipment produced by various manufacturers, and connections to the Ubiquitous Green Community Control Network (UGCCNet). It includes the gateway for different existing field buses.This standard provides protocols for measurement and control networks for home and residential quarters so that they can achieve green, smarter functions. It specifies the interactive data format between devices and systems; and it gives standardized definitions of the sensor, actuator, and equipment and data communication interfaces. This standard also includes: - The data format definition for configuration and management-oriented functions - The data format definition for deployment and control-oriented functions - The method of definition for conformance tests and interoperability tests
