Apple having an official presence at CES 2020 is the first time in decades that they have attended is huge. And for it to be about HomeKit makes it doubly huge.
Apple announced that Amazon, Apple, Google, Zigbee Alliance and board members form working group to develop open standard for smart home devices. That should be very good for home automation by promoting open standards, and Apple's focus in HomeKit on security, among other things, should benefit every company and customer invested in home automation.
Opening up HomeKit is a great step forward for Apple. HomeKit security is superior to home automation tech from Amazon, Google, Samsung, etc. But Apple needs to do more to push HomeKit forward.
