Sample text

It is not possible to know what wiring is available in the home or what medium will be used for installed CEBus devices. Provisions must be made to allow any medium in the home that meets the standard to be used. 20 Chapter 2 CEBus is primarily a residential network. CEBus is a home network standard, designed to handle typical residential consumer products and systems, using the media available in the home. Specific commercial requirements (large size, harsh environments, and the like) were not considered.

A product implements those contexts that define all of the functions the product is capable of supporting via CEBus. The syntax and operation of the CAL language are defined in EIA-600. The actual context data structures that pertain to real product functionality are defined in separate documents (grouped by industry functional category, such as lighting, audio/video, security, and HVAC). 32 Chapter Three These documents are developed jointly by the CEBus Industry Council and working groups of representatives from companies in each product category.

See Chapter 7 for more information on Context documents. CEBus Document Overview 19 The Design Constraints The difficulties of designing a residential network that can be installed by a homeowner are immense. To make the task practical, design constraints were imposed on the standard that bounded the difficulties. The scope of the network capability must be adequate to ensure successful consumer operation, yet be low cost and simply implemented. The following are the major resulting design requirements and constraints.
