It’s kinda big news if you’re a major player in the Smart Home market. Tuya, makers of Teckin, Gosund, Globe, and pretty much most Smart Home devices you see on the market, have joined the Zigbee Alliance Board of Directors.
Automate Your Life is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com and other Amazon websites.
So… we’ve talked about the significance of the One Standard to Rule them all Connected Home over IP project. I think Tuya needed to ensure they had a say in the new protocol.
