DoIP (Domotics over IP) is a technology that allows you to connect many different devices in your home to form a single, intelligent system for home automation. DoIP is designed to be plug-and-play to the largest extent possible. DoIP devices talk to eachother through messages; devices automatically find and connect with devices that support the same messages. DoIP networks commonly run over IP (wired and wireless Ethernet) networks. The DoIP specification is open and can be freely used by anyone.
