A global, wireless feature of Zigbee that allows for energy-harvesting technology to be used directly with the Zigbee stack.
Simplify power. Streamline design.
Save the planet.
Heat, kinetic, inductive and light energy power allow Green Power devices to go where they’re needed. No wires, no batteries, no costly installation and no maintenance.
Battery-less and Low-Power
Ultra-low power RF silicon uses many orders of magnitude less power for devices in locations where battery replacement is not an option and the mesh network saves even more energy by reducing packet length, round-trips, connection rediscovery, and on-network time for devices that may be offline for extended periods of time.
Durable and Flexible
A standard application layer enhanced with compact and generic commands supporting furture-proof scenarios.
A standard application layer for sensors to work together out-of-the-box.
Secure and Reliable
Secure by design self-healing mesh network eliminates single points of failure.

Devices are powered via energy harvesting at their installed location, harnessing energy from everyday activities to power the device through its entire life-cycle, eliminating the need for batteries.
Green Power devices can operate at their full capacity using the device’s energy harvesting capabilities to provide complete, battery-less solutions that are low-maintenance, low-power, and low-impact on the environment.
Mature and Sustainable
Using one world-wide RF band and proven, ultra-low power mesh technology, Green Power can be used to create stable wireless networks that power themselves, reducing battery waste and drawing little additional power.
Shared application layer with Zigbee library, provides interoperability and integration with Zigbee devices and platforms.
Simple and Secure
Secure by design, meeting all of Connectivity Standards Alliances’ necessary security requirements and featuring self-healing mesh to eliminate points of failure. Securely adding new devices is simple as well, with no re-wiring required.
Learn How and Why Green Power is Serving the Market Today
Green Power is a wireless feature of Zigbee that allows for energy-harvesting technology to be used directly with the Zigbee devices around the world.

Green Power is like the honey bee of standards – running more efficiently than Zigbee alone.
Green Power in the Market
Green Power adds convenience to the smart home by allowing residents to use long lasting devices with no need to replace batteries. Kinetically powered switch sensors can be integrated directly into products, like light switches, doors, windows, etc. These devices generate energy solely from the user’s normal, everyday hand movements of pressing a button, opening something, or rotating a handle – and they work for the entire lifetime of the product. The sensors also generate their energy only from sunlight or ambient light while eliminating the need for a back-up battery.
Green Power shines in commercial installations by allowing for a wireless and battery-less installation that means ultimate flexibility in an adaptive environment. Green Power helps reduce switching costs and upkeep of an installation.
In the industrial space, on assembly line fabrication machines, vibration, movement and other factors make wiring difficult and costly. Being able to place a wireless button in an effective location for the operator of the machine is important, especially when safety is critical.
Utility / Energy
Green Power reduces cost in the utility space by harvesting energy in smart breakers.
By harvesting the energy flowing through a smart breaker, Green Power isolates the breaker logic, takes less space, and is less costly to produce.
Smart circuit breakers monitor energy use and can detect uncharacteristic consumption which can prevent equipment failure and reduce cost.
