联 合 声 明
近期亚马逊、苹果公司、谷歌和Zigbee联盟宣布共同成立新工作组Project Connected Home over IP(互联家居项目)，开发和推广免专利费的新连接协议，以提升智能家居生态之间的兼容性。
Recently, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Zigbee Alliance announced the formation of a new working group, Project Connected Home over IP, that plans to develop and promote the adoption of a new, royalty-free connectivity standard to increase compatibility among smart home products.
Zigbee联盟制定的Zigbee 3.0标准是开放、多芯片平台、多厂家的物联网设备互操作标准，被全球多个生态圈采用，在世界各地部署了5亿多个设备，以实践验证了其稳定、成熟和互操作的特性。而脱胎于Zigbee应用层协议Zigbee Cluster Library的Dotdot标准将成为互联家居项目工作组所开发新技术的一个组成部分。该工作组意在打造跨生态圈的的互操作应用标准，加以利用Zigbee联盟设备间完整的互操作解决方案和来自亚马逊、苹果公司和谷歌已经过市场检验的技术，从而带给消费者充分的信心：他们随心选择的设备不仅可以在家中正常工作，还能用任何喜欢的系统来进行配置和控制。这些大公司达成这一深层次的合作影响深远，必将造福消费者，大大促进整个智能家居和物联网的发展。
The Zigbee 3.0 standard developed by the Zigbee Alliance is an interoperable open standard for IoT devices across multiple platform vendors and manufacturers. It has been adopted by a number of leading ecosystems around the world; the more than 500 million devices deployed worldwide are a testament to its robustness, maturity, and interoperability. Dotdot, which is derived from Zigbee’s application layer and also known as the Zigbee Cluster Library, is one of the contributions to Project Connected Home over IP. The Working Group intends to develop a meaningful interoperable application standard across ecosystem platforms, taking advantage of the Zigbee Alliance’s complete solution for device-to-device interoperability, as well as other market-tested technologies from Amazon, Apple, and Google, so as to provide consumers with the confidence that their device of choice will work in their home and that they will be able to setup and control it with their preferred system. This level of collaboration among these companies will undoubtedly have far-reaching effects, benefiting consumers and greatly promoting the development of the smart home industry, as well as the IoT.
Since its inception, the Zigbee Alliance has encouraged members from Europe, the United States, and China to work together to develop the technologies and standards for the future of the Internet of Things. The Alliance also encourages members to implement and promote the standards on all continents.
China’s smart home market, which has its unique requirements and development paths, has been actively embracing Zigbee. As members of the board of directors of the Zigbee Alliance and leading smart home device manufacturers who are deeply rooted in the Chinese market, we share the same vision for the future of the smart home; hence, we declare our full support and participation to Project Connected Home over IP, continue to launch Zigbee 3.0 products and applications, and implement the new technology by Project Connected Home over IP, so as to advance to a more interoperable world and deliver better smart home experiences to consumers.
