Dotdot is the universal language of the Internet of Things, making it possible for smart objects to work together on Zigbee, IP, and other networks.
In the Internet of Things, every smart device must understand and speak the same language at the application layer. How else is a smart hub expected to know how to communicate and control an off-the-shelf door lock or thermostat? Without a common application layer, devices from different networks (Wi-Fi, Thread, Bluetooth, Zigbee) can’t communicate.
Dotdot is an open standard that can run over many networks allowing smart objects to communicate. Dotdot is based on the mature, proven solutions of the Zigbee Alliance. It is the product of 10+ years of work and experience from hundreds of innovative Zigbee Alliance member companies from across the industry and around the world.
