Z-Wave Alliance Adds SmartThings
The Z-Wave Alliance announced that it has added the Samsung-owned SmartThings as a principal and board member.
On the board, SmartThings joins ADT, Evolve Guest Controls, FAKRO, Ingersoll-Rand, Jasco Products, LG Uplus, Nortek Security & Control, and Sigma Designs.
"SmartThings is a welcome addition to the Z-Wave Alliance Board of Directors," Alliance Chairman Mark Walters said in a statement. "The incredible growth they've experienced in just over two years -- culminating in their purchase by Samsung -- is a testament to their understanding of the smart home market and a validation of their platform. This kind of market insight and technical expertise will prove instrumental in helping the Z-Wave Alliance guide the future of our industry-leading technology."
