With the introduction of BLGW, there is a standard way of identifying resources and specifying activity and state in the connected systems. Such activity can be represented unambiguously in the form of a text string.
Home Integration Protocol allows external applications to directly interact with BLGW. This is done by means of a minimalist line-based protocol that directly transports the text representation of all activity.
Users of HIP include mobile applications such as BeoLink App, home and building automation controllers, event monitoring and logging applications, and other special applications.
