Zigbee

Zigbee is a networking protocol defined by the Zigbee Alliance for low-cost, low-power, wireless control and monitoring solutions. Designed on top of the IEEE® 802.15.4 standard, Zigbee is a self-healing, secure, robust, mesh protocol that can scale to hundreds of nodes across large areas. Zigbee networks can participate in the "Internet of Things" (IoT), allowing the network nodes to be remotely monitored and controlled from devices on the Internet, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Zigbee Networks with NFC Commissioning

Zigbee Networks with NFC Commissioning

The world is in the process of embracing the wireless network technology that is destined to bring an unprecedented level of automation to our everyday lives.

ENOCEAN-ENERGY-HARVESTING

Energy Harvesting Wireless Switch at CES 2014 (Zigbee, NFC)

Using NFC technology, the EnOcean switch can be added to a home network simply by tapping an NFC-equipped mobile phone on the gateway to collect important network parameters, and then using the phone to pass them on to the switch.
