Showcasing more than 4,500 exhibiting companies, from manufactures and developers to consumer technology suppliers, CES is well regarded as the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. This year at CES, attendees had an opportunity to get a first-hand look at how Bluetooth® technology is emerging as a key enabling solution for a wide range of consumer devices, especially new innovations for the smart home.  

In response to an increased adoption of Bluetooth mesh in smart home solutions, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) formed a new Smart Home Subgroup. The new subgroup will create additional Bluetooth mesh model specifications for smart home and related applications. “For the smart home market to grow, it needs true global wireless mesh networking standards that can meet the reliability, security, and performance needs of the market,” said Dian Fan, General Manager of Xiaomi IoT Platform. “We’re confident that Bluetooth mesh is one of those standards and will enable tremendous growth and innovation in home automation for years to come.”

“We’re confident that Bluetooth mesh…will enable tremendous growth and innovation in home automation for years to come.”
