The councils bring together representatives from business, government, education and other professions to identify and understand industry-wide problems and to implement long-term strategies and solutions that benefit the connected home and intelligent building sectors.

Throughout ASHB’s history, councils have been used to develop, document, and disseminate information on cooperative and collaborative activities.  They have also be used to provide technical assistance to foster, coordinate, and monitor the development of a mass market for integrated systems, home automation and intelligent building technologies.
