Home Connectivity Alliance grows aiming for consumer convenience

Techstination feature for Wednesday, September 7, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      The Home Connectivity Alliance is growing…with LG Electronics now among the companies on board.   The aim is to allow interoperability of smart features….giving consumers more freedom and choice when it comes to the apps they use for control.   And at the IFA trade show in Berlin this week…the HCA is demonstrating how it will work.   President Yoon Ho Choi says the idea is..

“Here are devices from many competing brands that work together with any of the apps from any of these brands.  So it’s an any app.. any device…scenario.”

It will be a big win for consumers.   For instance…the app you use to connect to a Samsung refrigerator could also control an LG dishwasher…and vice versa.    The promise is…it’s coming soon.
