The virtual event will offer the livestreaming of technical training and educational panels, as well as provide the opportunity for one-on-one meetings. Works With speakers from companies such as Amazon, Comcast, Google, and Silicon Labs will teach attendees how they can design and deliver certified IoT solutions that ‘work with’ any smart home ecosystem or wireless protocol.
“The next wave of IoT applications you’ll see in your home, work, and cities will increasingly be built on the connected technologies we and our community of developers, design collaborators and ecosystem partners create together,” said Silicon Labs CEO Tyson Tuttle. “It’s exciting to see our vision of building a smarter, more connected world come alive at the industry’s first Works With smart home event. With our decades of wireless experience, solid investment in IoT, and proven leadership in the smart home component market, Silicon Labs is uniquely positioned to educate developers and accelerate industry collaboration across protocol alliances, smart home ecosystems, design houses, distributors and developers.”
Silicon Labs will use the event to showcase the company’s comprehensive IoT hardware, software and development tools and platforms. The products offer a competitive advantage and wireless features that use minimal energy, feature the highest available security, and scale across any smart home ecosystem including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, Tuya Smart, as well as across multiple wireless protocols such as Bluetooth, Project Connected Home over IP (CHIP), Thread, Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Z-Wave and proprietary protocols.
“Connected homes and devices have never been more relevant or needed as they are right now,” said Matt Johnson, senior vice president of IoT at Silicon Labs. “Works with attendees will get the latest training and tools to accelerate their projects as we move the IoT industry beyond the act of connecting things to an increased focus on improving the ways we connect with the world and each-other. We have put considerable effort into giving IoT developers the
