How It Works

The Internet Home Alliance runs various pilot programs with consumers to evaluate market demand and perform technical testing for connected home services. Some of the recent pilots have included OnStar at Home, an Internet-Enabled Education Pilot, Structured Wiring Pilot, and an Energy Management Pilot. The OnStar at Home pilot was launched in early 2002 and was led by OnStar, Invensys, Panasonic, Hewlett-Packard, and ADT Security Services. The objective of the pilot was to integrate OnStar’s Virtual Advisor service (covered in an earlier profile) with home security, control, and telecommunications components. This provides homeowners with a way to remotely control systems such as lighting, temperature, and home security by using any PC, telephone, mobile phone, wireless PDA, or via the OnStar Personal Calling Service from their car or phone.
