November 11, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble is evaluating the Thread wireless technology protocol as part of the consumer goods company’s strategy for connected products. Created by a group of companies that includes, Nest, Samsung, and Silicon Labs, Thread is designed to compete with other wireless standards, such as Bluetooth, WiFi, and ZigBee, to link devices to each other and to the Internet. P&G Ventures associate director Alan Goldstein said the company chose Thread because it is designed specifically for the Internet of Things in the residential setting.
