Amazon, Apple, Google, and the Zigbee Alliance joined together to work on a new standard for smart-home protocol and integration. It’ll be IP based, very good news for Fing as well, as Fing can monitor IP networks/devices, while other protocols like zigbee, zwave and such are not discoverable w/o direct ad-hoc communication with the controller.

    Carlo, Thanks for posting this.   Very interesting. 
    "The goal of the first specification release will be..."  (no verb) and then three wireless protocols:
    Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax
    Thread over 802.15.4-2006 at 2.4 GHz (carries IP V6 to/from wireless nodes  Eg. Nest Protect)
    Bluetooth Low Energy, versions 4.1, 4.2, and 5.0 

    Fing App can see Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (depending on what the mobile phone supports), but they don't see Thread (yet?)
    Fing Box can see LAN traffic over Ethernet, but can it see WAN traffic as well as these three wireless protocols? 
    What I'm reading between the lines here is that Fing will need a Kismet-like wireless sniffing function that can also watch Thread.

    Fingbox, thanks to its dedicated wireless interface in passive mode, is able to see Wireless packets, used for Digital Fence and digital presence.
