Benefits

For businesses in the consumer-electronics arena, the advent of powerline networking and other forms of networking within the home open new possibilities for providing service to consumers. If consumers have a cable modem or DSL router, they can connect a powerline router and instantly have full Internet access across the home. This means that intelligent devices and appliances are then able to be accessed and connect with the Internet with ease if they support HomePlug or similar solutions. Consumers can manage home security settings and lighting settings. Retailers can offer value-added data services for their smart appliances and can troubleshoot appliances remotely, potentially eliminating the need for on-site service visits.

Some potential future scenarios for home networking in general include refrigerators that can reorder supplies, music systems that can purchase and play music downloaded from the Internet from music sites, gaming systems that can purchase and install new games, and a variety of home systems, such as air conditioning, electrical, and security settings, that can be remotely administered.
