Standard technology, certified interoperability, global 2.4GHz spectrum and regional SubGHz eases adoption and customer service.
Secure and Reliable
Secure by design, self-healing mesh network eliminates single points of failure, supporting residential, commercial and industrial deployments.
How to Get Certified
With hundreds of millions Smart Energy deployments globally, it’s the trusted choice for commodity monitoring and control.
Certification ensures Zigbee Smart Energy Application Standards deliver wireless networking and interoperability, while leveraging the expertise of hundreds of engineers and business people to ensure only quality products which have earned the Connectivity Standards Alliance Certified logo are available in the marketplace.
Commodities Metering Support
Supports multiple commodities including electric, gas, water, and thermal. This means real-time and historical information for the generation and consumption of energy, whether battery- or mains-powered, providing visibility for utilities and consumers alike.
Support text messaging that can be used for utility text messages to consumers and text message communication between devices.
Support Flat, Block, and Time of Unit (TOU) pricing for residential, and commercial/industrial customers. Provided customers when combined with metering with current energy cost, and forward looking cost to shift demand to peak generator periods to lower consumer energy cost and address utility grid stability in a Distributed Energy environment. TOU pricing often used as a demand response control signal to shift demand to low cost times eliminating need to send unique Demand Response events.
Demand and Response Load Control
Support real time shedding demand to prevent brownouts and blackouts, and future demand to balance demand and generation for utility grid stability plus maximize revenue over existing grid assets. Provides utility with encrypted demand response logs for tracking who received and ran events, and who opted out of demand response events.
Support Certificate Based Key Establishment using 128 bit X.509 certificates embedded in Smart Energy certified devices out of band for device authentication and unique encryption key between HAN devices and utility meters, and between HAN devices.
