Why should I use Zigbee in my home?

Zigbee allows you to control your world your way. It makes smart monitoring of your home easy with devices that alert you to intruders, smoke, carbon monoxide, and water leaks. And beyond basic monitoring, you can even enable automation so that your lights turn on when you unlock the front door or your shades close when the sun starts to hit the dining room table during dinner.

Unlike traditional hub systems, in which devices communicate to a central controller, Zigbee products utilize mesh networking technology, which allows devices to communicate with one another. If one relay device, or node, should fail, the devices can communicate with another relay device, leaving service uninterrupted as a whole.

Whether it’s testing your temperature, controlling your lights, or opening your drapes, Zigbee Certified Products keep your home the way you like it. Furthermore, Zigbee Certified Products with Green Power eliminate the need for batteries, making your home smart and energy-efficient.
