SAN FRANCISCO Microsoft Corp has joined Qualcomm Inc and other technology companies in a bid to establish standard ways for household devices like light bulbs and thermostats to talk to each other.
Qualcomm and other tech companies believe the quick establishment of standards across home connected gadgets, cars and wearable computing devices will accelerate the introduction of new devices by manufacturers.
Making it easy for software developers to design apps that let household devices work together in useful ways, like making living room LED light bulbs flash red when food is burning on the stove, may also stir more interest from consumers who have yet to become excited by smart products currently on offer, the companies hope.
Asked whether Intel Corp would join Qualcomm's alliance, an Intel spokeswoman said in an email, "There are multiple forums driving different approaches to solve the challenge of IoT connectivity. Currently, we don't see one single effort that addresses all the necessary requirements."
To that end, Qualcomm led the development of a connection standard called AllJoyn and made it free for other companies to use in their products.
