New, open standard for smart home connectivity

By eeNews Europe

Zigbee Alliance board member companies such as IKEA, Legrand, NXP Semiconductors, Resideo, Samsung SmartThings, Schneider Electric, Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), Silicon Labs, Somfy, and Wulian will also join the working group.

The Connected Home over IP project will aim to simplify the development of products that are compatible, secure, reliable and seamless to use. Using Internet Protocol (IP) will help to allow communication across smart home devices, mobile apps, and cloud services.

The working group will take an open-source approach, using contributions from market-tested smart home technologies from Amazon, Apple, Google, Zigbee Alliance and others. Using existing technologies will accelerate the development of the protocol. The resulting standard will make it easier to build devices that are compatible with smart home and voice services such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant and others.
