Thread certification process

Because many critical appliances and devices around the house need to be connected at all times every day, Thread technology has been developed to ensure uninterrupted connectivity with low power consumption. Designed with the home in mind, Thread is a simple, secure and efficient networking protocol based on a robust, self-healing mesh network with no unilateral point of failure.

Although the timeline for Thread testing and certification is planned according to the needs of each specific product, members follow a quick and efficient general process made up of the following steps:

  1. Member applies for certification on Thread website
  2. Member schedules services with an Authorized Test Lab (ATL)
  3. ATL receives two samples and begins testing
  4. ATL reports test results on Thread certification system
  5. Thread reviews test results
  6. Thread issues certification

Successful devices are distinguished as a “Thread certified component” and “Built on Thread” ensuring reliable interoperability within the smart home network environment. Thread compatible devices can be installed and integrated easily and consume low amounts of energy. Battery-operated devices are therefore able to operate over long periods of time.
