SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2015) - The AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry collaboration to advance the Internet of Everything through an open source software project, today announced six new members have joined the initiative including Fortune 50 company, Lowe's, and technical support services provider, Radialpoint.

"To see constant growth and diversity among the Alliance's member roster is a testament to the shared belief that collaborative development and open technologies are the only way to transform IoT as an industry," said Philip DesAutels, senior director, IoT, AllSeen Alliance. "These new member additions will help make AllJoyn a robust and highly scalable software for IoT devices, services and apps."

More about the new members:

Launched in July 2012, Iris by Lowe's is a smart home solution created to monitor and control virtually everything in the home anytime, anywhere from a computer, smart phone or tablet. Lowe's was among the first companies to target the mass consumer market with a broad home automation solution and to introduce an open platform, with the customer support that consumers have come to trust from Lowe's.

"Iris is proud to join the AllSeen Alliance and collaborate to bring a more diverse and useful set of solutions and products to consumers," said Mick Koster, vice president and general manager of Iris Home Systems. "AllSeen is helping to move forward consumer adoption of the DIY smart home space, and our alliance will allow us to deliver better value and ultimately offer consumers the best possible technology and breadth of products for their home."
