xAP is an open protocol intended to support the integration of telemetry and control devices primarily within the home - it is the glue that supports the interconnectivity of Home Automation devices.

The primary design objectives are:

- Simple, easy to implement/retrofit - Suitable for use with a wide range of processing capabilities, from embedded controllers to fully fledged PC's - Operating system agnostic - Programming language agnostic - Network agnostic

These are lofty design goals, and initial implementation is currently focussed on IP based networks, PC's running Linux and Win/32, and Rabbit embedded microcontrollers.
