Amazon.con Inc. (AMZN), Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Alphabet Inc.'s (GOOG) Google will work together to develop an open standard for smart home devices, such as Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri, the companies said Wednesday.

The companies will be working with The Zigbee Alliance, a foundation working to develop universal open standards for Internet of Things products. Members of the Zigbee Alliance's board include executives from Apple, Amazon, Comcast Corp. (CMCSA), The Kroger Co. (KR) and IKEA, among others, it said.

The companies said the goal of the project "aims to enable communication across smart home devices, mobile apps, and cloud services and to define a specific set of IP-based networking technologies for device certification."
