The Connectivity Standards Alliance guides the IoT forward by simplifying and harmonizing technology standards across the industry. By fostering unprecedented collaboration, we are building a better, more connected world together. We tackle head-on the barriers to IoT growth and adoption by creating standards that matter. Our library of protocols enable the seamless interoperability users crave, making truly connected environments in business, at home, and play a reality.
Common standards are just good business: they reduce barriers to entry, helping any firm with a fresh idea bring their innovative solution to market quickly. That’s a win-win for consumers, the economy, and our competitive juices!
With an unwavering focus on the fundamentals of security, privacy, inclusivity, equity and openness, we help ensure everyone enjoys increasingly greater value from the IoT.
The Alliance develops and supports some of the most widely adopted smart home technologies in the IoT. As the growth of the Smart Home market continues at breath-taking pace, adoption of Alliance standards like Zigbee and Matter is a proven method to secure market share. Alliance-certified products take guesswork out of the purchasing process, letting consumers choose from a wider range of the brands they love, making the comfort of a secure and seamlessly connected home a reality.
Today’s commercial buildings rely on a staggering array of applications and connected devices working in concert. Our standards pave the way for smoothly operating wireless commercial building applications. Alliance-certified solutions ensure that such diverse systems as lighting, energy, HVAC, daylight and window blinds, room assignment and access, safety, and other essential applications and devices work seamlessly together, from installation, retrofitting, and monitoring to analysis, end-to-end security.
With climate change becoming an increasingly critical global concern, we couldn't be more proud that our Smart Energy protocol is the world’s leading standard for interoperable products that monitor, control and automate the use of energy and water. Every consumer has the power to be a good steward of precious resources when they have access to innovative solutions that provide insight and control of their energy usage.
Wireless lighting offers the most wide-spread application of Alliance technology today. Through our technologies, we support connected lightbulbs in virtually every room of a residence or commercial building. Because Alliance-certified devices can be easily managed, significant energy efficiency gains and lower lighting-related utility costs are achievable. In combination with motion sensors and other devices, an automated system that provides a great environment for occupants while driving energy savings is a win-win!
