Tuesday, June 15, 2021
8 am San Francisco / 11 am New York / 4 pm London
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth have become ubiquitous connectivity standards with very high consumer awareness. In this webinar we’ll dive into these and other standards, such as Zigbee and Thread, to determine what types of connectivity are best suited to smart home applications. We’ll discuss how each technology fits into major smart home ecosystems from Google, Amazon, Apple, and others. We’ll learn what is required to support the upcoming industry-wide smart home application layer, Matter (formerly CHIP) and if there is still a role for proprietary protocols in consumer smart devices.
