ADT joins Z-Wave Alliance

The Z-Wave Alliance, the standards organisation behind the the Z-Wave wireless smart home protocol, has announced that ADT, a provider of security, automation, and smart home solutions, has joined the Z-Wave Alliance.

Earlier this year, the Z-Wave Alliance announced its incorporation as an independent non-profit standards development organisation, including new levels of membership, organisational structure, and member-driven support. As the newest Principal Member of the Z-Wave Alliance, ADT will be joining other industry leaders including Alarm.com, Assa Abloy, Leedarson, Ring, Silicon Labs, StratIS, and Qolsys in advancing Z-Wave technology.

“As a principal member of the Z-Wave Alliance, ADT will collaborate with other smart home industry innovators to advance standards that create helpful user experiences and are rooted in security and privacy,” said Raya Sevilla, senior vice president of product at ADT. “ADT has a longstanding history of contributing to smart home security standards development, and we’re eager to continue that tradition within the newly organized Z-Wave Alliance.”

“The Z-Wave Alliance has stood as an IoT and smart home industry leader for over a decade and our transition into a fully ratified standards development organization has progressed both rapidly and with monumental contribution and support from our members,” said Mitch Klein, executive director for the Z-Wave Alliance. “Through the years, ADT has supported the Z-Wave Alliance and championed Z-Wave technology in the security market. We’re thrilled to have them on board as a Principal Board Member under the new SDO.”
