The world’s most popular brand of internet-connected household appliances will be able to connect to one another in the coming months with the launch of the Huawei Connect Smart home certification program.
The certification program will be rolled out in a trial phase over the next year, which will enable Huawei devices to connect with DHL and Dyson smart homes.
It will allow Huawei devices from around the world to be certified to meet the requirements of the new standard, which is the first of its kind in the world.
The Huawei Connect smart home certification will cover everything from basic internet connectivity to energy-saving appliances.
The program will also cover IoT devices, such as smart thermostats and security cameras.
The DHL program is aimed at consumers and enterprises looking to move away from the legacy model of traditional network equipment, and build smart home solutions with cloud-based technology, security and automation.
The smart home industry has a lot of challenges, but one of the biggest is security.
DHL, which owns DHL Global, announced the first internet-of a thing (IoT) certification program in December last year.
The Dyson partnership is an example of Huawei trying to help it be more open about the way in which IoT is being used in homes and businesses, said Dyson Chief Executive Officer Simon Gulliver.
The Dyson Connect Smart Home certification will allow Dyson Smart Home devices to communicate with Huawei IoT devices.
The company is keen to support the new smart home standard, said Gullivers.
The partnership with Huawei will enable it to help Dyson develop a range of products to support IoT, from smart thermoregulation and security systems to refrigerators, to lighting and lighting-control products.
Gulliver said the Huawei smart home program will enable the company to help companies build the smart home experience that consumers want.
Huawei and Dhl are keen to encourage the IoT revolution in the home, Gullivis said.
This will help to help them become the leading brand in the IoT world, he said.
“I’m really excited to see how this partnership will benefit the smart connected home market and the brands we work with,” Gullive said.
