Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
That's interesting. We use Nest thermostat at home but not the entore home system. So not aware of entire home security. But tht's not good to have issues to unlock homes.

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
Interesting how Google's outage though exposed the shortcomings--I was seeing reports that Nest users could not get their homes unlocked--we have ways to goes--don't we?

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
I was exactly thinking the same. Whole home wifi is what is in use right now. There could be slight variation in terms of features if at all any difference. Agree with you @comm that train may have left the station already.

no wifi before?
"introducing things like WiFi and WiFi mesh into the mix"

The earlier USP did not include WiFi? Good upgrade, then.

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
I would say that's a pretty popular download! Standards can be so nice. I hope to read more about implementation efforts in the near future. Hopefully, all is actually better with this release.

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
We're already at the "Whole Home" Wi-Fi--aren't we?   The developments of the standard are a good thing-but hasn't the train already left the station not withstanding the downloads?

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
@DonBrowne I was thinking the same thing. A billion times is a lot for a platform to be downloaded. So it should be a logical entry into the smart home, or connected home, and IoT.

Re: Whole-Home Wi-Fi
Noting that "TR-069 has been downloaded more than 1 billion times" it would seem the USP should very well be an excellent next move to gain momentum in the IoT market and the connected home with standards to help propel it along nicely.

Whole-Home Wi-Fi
Watched the video and Barbara Stark made it as clear to the layman as possible. Testing is necessary for quality of experience, and home owners will no longer settle for anything less than whole-home Wi-Fi. I was confused by the term "sub-pub."
