The CECED Convergence Working Group has defined a new platform, called CHAIN (Ceced Home Appliances Interoperating Network), which defines a protocol for interconnecting different home appliances in a single multibrand system.

It allows for control and automation of all basic appliance-related services in a home: e.g., remote control of appliance operation, energy or load management, remote diagnostics and automatic maintenance support to appliances, downloading and updating of data, programs and services (possibly from the Internet).
