What is Thread

 

Thread is an networking protocol built on open standards, designed for low-power mesh networks. Existing popular application protocols and IoT platforms can run over Thread networks.

Millions of existing wireless devices already on the market can run Thread with just a software enhancement — no new hardware required. Thread is designed for quick implementation and deployment of devices throughout the home.

Thread is seen as a natural evolution for many Home Automation products based on the ZigBee protocol and will allow devices from different vendors to interoperate, something that hasn't been possible previously.
