The report said an important feature of the markets for the connected home was that they were successfully serviced by an ecosystem of partners, rather than a single, vertically integrated service provider.
"No single player currently has the capacity to deliver every element of the service, or to do so with the speed and specialisation needed to keep pace with the competition," the report said.
"The telecommunications service providers that have launched successfully have found a place in the ecosystem where their capabilities in IP connectivity, gateway control and billing have allowed them to deliver value to customers, even as they compete with some of these partners.
"As the home automation market develops in Australia there are significant opportunities for telecommunications services providers to share in the growth and develop additional revenue streams."
