Electronic – Home automation protocols in Europe


Which protocols are used in Europe? I'm more interested in "higher layer" protocols (e.g. light bulb control) than with the physical layer, but those will be welcome too.

Does the KNX standard have that "high layer" behaviour defined or it's just for physical layer (wires, electric power and RF)?

There is Common External Message Interface (cEMI) which should be independent of the physical layer. Openremote has also a nice technical overview of KNX.
