Arrayent Introduces EcoAdaptor for Nest Developers

By Ken Briodagh April 06, 2016

Smart Home is at a crossroads. Consumers are not flocking into the ecosystem nearly quickly enough to satisfy the number of products being released. One of the factors holding up that process is interoperability.

Arrayent, the developer of the Arrayent Connect IoT platform has released its first commercially available EcoAdaptor, the EcoAdaptor for Nest.  The EcoAdaptor for Nest is designed to help global brand owners reduce time to deployment associated with the Works with Nest product certification process.

The company’s first customer has already obtained Works with Nest certification and is selling its product at scale in multiple markets.

This is the first of the company’s EcoAdaptors, and Arrayent expects that additional ones will expand the ability for connected products of Arrayent customers to interact with other IoT platform APIs in a secure and scalable way. Arrayent’s EcoAdaptor service customers not only save development time, they can deliver more value to end consumers, while gaining confidence that they are relying on a proven approach that ensures scalable, secure and well-maintained service over time.   

“Our customers want to expand their businesses beyond stand-alone products to create service-oriented ecosystems that integrate through Cloud-to-Cloud connections,” said Cyril Brignone, CEO, Arrayent. “With our new EcoAdaptor for Nest, our global brand customers can more quickly build on the Works with Nest API to increase the functionality and value of their own products.”

Arrayent built its EcoAdaptor for Nest in collaboration with existing Works with Nest developers and Arrayent customers. “Arrayent customers are major consumer product companies that can’t afford to suffer damage to their reputation and brand equity as a result of security issues or network failures” said William Oget, VP, Engineering, Arrayent. “The Arrayent team paid special attention to both the scalability and security aspects of the EcoAdaptor for Nest implementation.”

The EcoAdaptor program is making strides toward using APIs to encourage interoperability in a way that the Connected Home markets needs. As more and more companies do likewise, it is to be expected that consumers will find ways to bring their homes into ever more connected systems of things. And that’s a win all around.
