[Standards] Status of XEP-xxxx: Sensor-over-XMPP

We are using XMPP for both sensor reporting and control for building and
home automation applications. We have implemented a very rich set of
stanza's that cover almost all common types of devices and it is designed
to work on very low resource embedded devices. This implementation is
currently in closed beta although there are some very large brands who have
started to develop applications and hardware using our protocol and
technology. Our intention is to make the protocol public once we had a full
working public available implementation.

When we became aware of the proposed XEP extension mentioned here we were
already a long way down the road with our own, and as there is so much more
to making a complete system than is exposed in this XEP, we felt we needed
a working implementation to compare and contrast and make meaningful
contributions based on experience...

We would be excited to work with others on creating a standard... the
problem as always is time to commit to this exercise. That being said, we
do have executing code and multiple devices talking to each otehr across
continents... so I think we are at the stage where we could add to any
serious attempt for standardization.
