Resideo Joins Zigbee Alliance Board of Directors

The Zigbee Alliance, an organization comprising hundreds of companies that create and maintain open, global standards for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that Resideo Technologies has joined its Board of Directors. Along with other Zigbee Alliance member companies, Resideo will play a role in the Connected Home Over IP Project, designed to simplify development for manufacturers and increase device compatibility for consumers.

Resideo provides connected-home solutions and manufactures smart-home solutions, some carrying the Honeywell Home brand. The company has controls in more than 150 million homes worldwide and is focused on offering consumers a simple, intuitive smart-home experience.

"Resideo is synonymous with residential home controls, having created the original thermostat when it was still part of Honeywell," said Tobin Richardson, the Zigbee Alliance's president and CEO, 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."

Resideo is focused on protecting a home's four main networks: air, water, energy and security. Through its Works with Honeywell Home API program, the organization offers homeowners more than 4,000 partner connections. "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, Resideo's VP and general manager for connected homes, in a prepared 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."
