First Thread-enabled IoT light switch showcased by Samsung and Legrand
At the Samsung Developer Conference 2016 today Samsung and Legrand showcased the world’s first Thread-enabled IoT light switch which is powered by Samsung’s Artik end-to-end platform, which is a fully integrated chip to cloud solution that enables companies like Legrand to speed up their product development process and reduce time to market.
The Thread platform was designed to securely and easily connect hundreds of IoT devices to each other and to the cloud using real internet protocols over a low-power wireless mesh network. It’s a great foundation for the connected home as it offers a secure and reliable mesh network with no single point of failure, low power, and simple connectivity. “In combination with the SAMSUNG ARTIK Cloud, our smart light switches interoperate with other smart-home products and effectively serve as the central nervous system of the home to make life simpler, more convenient and more secure for our customers,” said Brian DiBella, President Electrical Wiring Systems, Legrand, North America. The Legrand reference design demonstrations are available at SDC 2016.
