This document presents requirements specific to home control and
automation applications for Routing Over Low
power and Lossy (ROLL) networks.  In the near future, many homes will
contain high numbers of wireless devices for a wide set of
purposes.  Examples include actuators (relay, light dimmer, heating
valve), sensors (wall switch, water leak, blood pressure), and
advanced controllers (radio-frequency-based AV remote control, central
server for light and heat control).  Because such devices only cover a
limited radio range, routing is often required.  The aim of this
document is to specify the routing requirements for networks
comprising such constrained devices in a home-control and automation
environment.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks Working Group of the IETF.
