ZigBee And Thread Act To Make Their IoT Smarts Stack Up

As the latest edition of the International CES trade show begins on Tuesday, consumers are faced with a slew of new standards, protocols and frameworks to tie home IoT products together as an easily managed system. On Monday, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced it's finished a new specification it calls Wi-Fi HaLow, which uses less power so it can work in small battery-powered devices.

Consumers could benefit from steps to combine some of these approaches. Research company Parks Associates estimates that 43 percent of U.S. households will buy a connected-home product this year.
