Thread is a low-power wireless mesh networking architecture protocol, based on the universally supported Internet Protocol (IP), and built using open and proven standards that can advance and accelerate adoption of IoT in homes and buildings. Thread enables direct, end-to-end, secure and scalable connectivity between IoT devices across a wide variety of applications, from appliances, to access and climate control, lighting, safety and energy management.

The authorization by Thread Group is another milestone for DEKRA in the company’s certification testing offering. Noemi Perez, IoT Laboratory Manager at DEKRA: “After closely cooperating with Thread Group and supporting the test environment work managed by the testing and validation team, the icing on the cake for us right now is being authorized as a Thread Authorized Testing Laboratory. It will allow us to further expand on our services in the smart home and building automation markets.”

“We are excited to answer the growing global home and commercial market demand for Thread resources and services by working with DEKRA, a knowledgeable and capable testing and certification company, to jointly serve our members and customers in the geographies in which DEKRA operates,” said Grant Erickson, president of Thread Group.

Thread is not only relevant to residential homes, but also for commercial grade buildings, allowing manufacturers to future-proof their products for smart city solutions as well. Next to certification testing for Thread, DEKRA offers solutions for the entire IoT market with testing for cyber security, reliability, interoperability, electrical safety and other areas.
