AllJoyn is an open source software framework that makes it easy for devices and apps to discover and communicate with each other.

 AllJoyn framework is flexible, promotes proximal network and cloud connection is optional. A simple example would be a motion sensor letting a light bulb know no one is in the room it is lighting, so it can shut itself off.

In October 2016 they announced their merger into IoTivity. Also during the merging announcement, it was stated that current devices running either AllJoyn or Iotivity will be interoperable and backward compatible. Within the merging process, the project’s licence was changed to the Apache 2.0 Licence which makes it easier for other open source projects to include AllJoyn.
