The Thread Group and CABA Collaborate on IoT Interoperability

The Thread Group, an industry alliance focused on internet of things for home and beyond has entered into a reciprocal agreement with the Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), a global not-for-profit industry organization dedicated to the advancement of connected home and intelligent building technologies. The objective of the agreement is to collaborate and share information. Both the groups feel that increased collaboration would further their mutual objectives and enable both organizations to deliver increased value to their memberships.

CABA’s charter promotes open standards for connectivity in homes and buildings which is similar to the Thread Group’s goal of enabling IoT interoperability. This agreement majorly focuses on sharing information and working together on issues that matter to both organizations. Specifically, CABA and the Thread Group can now establish forums and exchange information on connected home and intelligent building issues and plans, and share information on key topics affecting the development and implementation of home and building automation.
