Echelon (ELON) is soaring, and Control4 (CTRL) is posting a more moderate gain, after the FT reported on Monday Apple is prepping a home automation software platform for its iOS hardware, and is in talks with OEMs to certify their hardware for use with it.

Echelon also flew higher in response to the Google/Nest deal, but soon gave back a large portion of its gains.
