The Zigbee Alliance, an organization of hundreds of companies creating, maintaining, and delivering open, global standards for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that Resideo Technologies, Inc., has joined its Board of Directors.
Along with other Zigbee Alliance promoter member companies, Resideo also will play a vital role in the Connected Home over IP project, which aims to simplify development for manufacturers and increase device compatibility for consumers.
Resideo is a global provider of connected home solutions and manufactures a broad array of smart home solutions, some that carry the Honeywell Home brand. The company has controls in more than 150 million homes worldwide and is focused on offering consumers a simpler, more intuitive smart home experience that helps keep families and loved ones safe, comfortable and secure.
“Resideo is synonymous with residential home controls, having created the original thermostat when it was still part of Honeywell,” says Tobin Richardson, president and CEO, Zigbee Alliance.
“Fast forward to 2020 and they are now a leader across the connected home and bring tremendous technological resources to our Alliance. Their breadth of connected solutions allows companies using the Zigbee protocol in their products to help simplify the smart home experience for consumers.”
