As @keshlam explained me in Comparison of various home-automation systems?, it is not possible to get up-to-date NPOV comparison of various home automation systems.

What about a list of home-automation systems/protocols (maybe with basic parameters, such as wired/wireless, etc.)?

  • It seems to me that this list will change over time, and would be difficult; if not impossible, to maintain in this format.

  • @Tester101 This question is not seeking product or service recommendations. Just to create a list of them.

  • This question has the same problem, in that the products will change over time. Which means the answer must also change. This is not a good fit to the format of the site.

  • Which StackExchange site should I use? ("Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve." - I am new to home automation and I'd like to choose a suitable home automation system.)

The following protocols are listed in Wikipedia:

In addition to these, I know there are the following systems:

  • FS20
  • HomeEasy
  • HomeMatic
  • iComfort
  • Kopp FreeControl
  • Belkin WEMO: @wikipedia
  • Intertechno
  • ELRO

Actually, I do not know whether some of these systems do not use some protocols above.

There are already some question concerning this topic:
