First IoT Interface Spec Emerges

The IoT-Ready Alliance introduces its first specification, the IoT-Ready Interface Specification V1.0. The spec defines a socket that allows any type of IoT sensor or control module to connect seamlessly to a luminaire or other building system. The standard is network-protocol independent, which enables IoT-Ready-compliant products to employ any networking protocol, either wired or wireless and is suitable for all LED lighting and building control networks. 

 

Benefits of the IoT-Ready standard include:
