Just as wireless devices are connecting millions all over the world to work, do home tasks, and play through smart home electronics, today is Silicon Labs' first day to connect the IoT developer community with the smart home platform and protocol leaders moving this exciting space forward.
Silicon Labs Works With virtual smart home developer conference starts today, and we welcome the thousands of developers and smart home IoT fans who have registered to immerse themselves in our keynotes, workshops, and technical tracks - most likely from the comfort of your own smart home.
"It's exciting to see our vision of building a smarter, more connected world come alive at the industry's first Works With smart home developer conference," said Silicon Labs CEO Tyson Tuttle. "With our decades of wireless experience, a solid investment in IoT, and proven leadership in the smart home component market, Silicon Labs is uniquely positioned to educate developers and accelerate industry collaboration across protocols, smart home ecosystems, design houses, distributors and developers."
Silicon Labs plays a key connector role in IoT through our broad portfolio of wireless multiprotocol hardware and software solutions. We are proud to connect you to smart home industry leaders, technical training sessions, one-on-one developer meetings, and more. Speakers from companies like Amazon, Comcast, Google, Tuya, Silicon Labs, and others will train attendees to design and deliver certified IoT solutions that "work with" any smart home ecosystem or wireless protocol.
Here's what to expect from Works With 2020, kicking off today at 10:00 AM EDT|7:00 AM PDT and running through tomorrow, September 10.
Be the first to hear the latest announcements and innovations from industry leaders shaping the future of IoT development. Our president and CEO, Tyson Tuttle, and our SVP of IoT, Matt Johnson, get things started today with a welcome keynote and panel session featuring some of the world's most influential smart home leaders, including Grant Erickson, Principal Software Engineer at Google; Jim Kitchen, Vice President of Connected Home Devices and Platforms at Comcast; and Joshua Danovitz, General Manager of Amazon Common Software (ACS). Each representative will share their company's vision for the smart home and discuss how IoT developers can better design new products for each of their established and growing ecosystems.
IoT devotees and developers will also want to tune-in today at 2:00 PM EDT|11:00 AM PDT for a panel discussion led by Stacey Higginbotham, veteran technology journalist and host of the popular Stacey on IoT podcast. Stacey will be joined by Mark Reimer, Vice President of Product Engineering at ADT; Martin Huddart, Head of Smart Residential Solutions at ASSA ABLOY; Per Sigurdson, Development Leader - Home Smart at IKEA; Sujata Neidig, Marketing Director at NXP; and George Yianni, Head of Technology at Philips Hue. The group will discuss topics such as the highly anticipated Project Connected Home over IP (CHIP), as well as the smart home industry's overall efforts to give developers the hardware and software interoperability they need to meet consumers' expectations. The opportunities to grow the smart home market are great, but so are some of the challenges. This group will cover that ground.
Tomorrow, our flagship keynote features none other than Jamie Siminoff, Founder and Chief Inventor of Ring. Matt Johnson will join Jamie, and the two will discuss Jamie's experience inventing Ring, what's happening across the growing Ring ecosystem, and Amazon's promising Sidewalk effort.
