POWERFUL TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED FOR THE HOME

It’s hard to get devices to talk to one another. And once they do, the connection is often spotty and power hungry. Thread changes all that. It’s a mesh network designed to securely and reliably connect hundreds of products around the home – without blowing through battery life.

  • Designed specifically for the home
  • Robust self-healing mesh network
  • No single point of failure
  • Interoperable by design using proven, open standards and IPv6 technology with 6LoWPAN as the foundation
  • Requires just a software enhancement for today’s 802.15.4 products

Designed to support a wide variety of products for the home: appliances, access control, climate control, energy management, lighting, safety, and security


SIMPLE. SECURE. SCALABLE.

All Thread networks are encrypted.


All Thread networks are easy to set up and secure to use. They use a smartphone-era authentication scheme and AES encryption to close security holes that exist in other wireless protocols.

  • Simple installation using your smartphone, tablet or computer
  • Scalable to connect 250+ devices into a single network supporting multiple hops
  • Provides security at network and application layers
  • Product install codes are used to ensure only authorized devices can join the network
  • Supported by banking-class, public-key cryptography

BATTERY FRIENDLY DESIGN

Better for consumers and the environment.


Designed from the ground up to have extremely low power consumption. Devices efficiently communicate to deliver a great user experience, yet still run for years on the smallest of batteries.

  • Extensive support for sleepy nodes allows for years of operation, even on a single AA battery
  • Based on the power efficient IEEE 802.15.4 MAC/PHY
  • Short messaging conserves bandwidth and power
  • Streamlined routing protocol reduces network overhead and latency
  • Designed to run on readily available, low power wireless system-on-chips
