Legrand to Use Nest Weave Communication Protocol in ELIoT Connected Products
Thread and Nest Weave to be foundation of new ELioT IoT platform from Legrand.
Convinced that the Internet of Things is opening up a new era for connected buildings and having launched the Eliot program in July, Legrand is today announcing it is working with Nest Inc. and will be using the Nest Weave protocol in the development of its connected products.
As announced on 8 July 2015 during a press conference to unveil Eliot, its Internet of Things program, Legrand continues to promote interoperability between connected products in buildings. Legrand will therefore develop products for the home that use Nest Weave.
Convinced that interoperability is an essential condition for further roll-out of the Internet of Things in buildings , Legrand intends to promote “open languages”, capable of integrating and communicating with as many third-party systems as possible, thereby offering the user numerous benefits and additional options for use while allowing them the freedom to choose to purchase equipment at their own pace, gradually, as the need arises.
Legrand is also a member of the AllSeen Alliance, one of the most important international consortia campaigning for global adoption of Internet of Things products, systems and services based on AllJoyn technology, and historically of the ZigBee Alliance (ZigBee being the open global international wireless standard for the Internet of Things).
