CableLabs specifications for home security, energy management and home automation (SMA) have been adopted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for use in energy-efficient Smart Grid networks.

The SMA specification was included in the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards Release 1.0 as one of 31 standards that were found to have “strong stakeholder consensus.”
