MALVERN, PA, June 13, 2013 — Zonoff, Inc., creators of the Zonoff Connected Home Platform, today announced the availability of their Open Device Software Development Kit for qualified partners who are currently (or will soon be) manufacturing connected devices. The new SDK enables device OEMs to take advantage of rapidly developing innovation within the “Internet of Things” space, in order to deliver compelling connected home solutions to consumers.
