Zigbee says Resideo 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 manufactures a broad array of smart home solutions and has controls in more than 150 million homes worldwide.
“Resideo is synonymous with residential home controls, having created the original thermostat when it was still part of Honeywell,” said Tobin Richardson, president and CEO, Zigbee Alliance, in a prepared statement. “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.”
“As a global leader in the connected home industry, it’s our responsibility to partner with other established companies to help drive standards and value for the intelligent living landscape,” said Scott Harkins, vice-president and general manager, Connected Home, Resideo, also in a statement. “We take an open architecture approach, and our involvement in industry standards organizations like the Zigbee Alliance helps set the course for market players and facilities to have stronger compatibility between products and ecosystems to make smart home connections easier for homeowners.”
