Home automation has been something Android has dabbled in in the past. The variety of standards and brands vying for the space is causing some confusion, but the more that are supported the faster we will see home automation become a realty for more households. The ZigBee Alliance is one of these specifications for wireless communication. Native support for the standard could soon be coming to Samsung and HTC phones. Samsung makes a slew of products, some of which are actually ZigBee products, so it's natural evolution for them to put support in their mobile devices. HTC is also interested in more support for standards like ZigBee. We have no official word from the companies or a date in which we think we may see support, but let's hope it's sooner rather than later. I for one am very excited at the prospect of home automation and would love to control light switches and appliances with my smartphone. As I mentioned above, the more support manufacturers enable on their phones, the faster we will see the deployment of more automation products.
