Why Zigbee?

The Difference in Developing with Zigbee

It includes testing, certification, branding, and marketing support to make it easier to develop and sell interoperable products and solutions. It unlocks growth opportunities while fueling innovation to enable new capabilities at home, work, and on the road.

  • A mature and widely deployed standard with established channels for your new products
  • Zigbee products work with every Zigbee Certified connected home or business platform
  • Choose products that will keep working for you and won’t lock you into a single vendor’s ecosystem
  • Develop products that work for you and your customers, without one-off integration costs or lock-in
  • Backward-compatibility with existing Zigbee products and legacy profiles

Zigbee in Your Home 

Zigbee allows you to control your world your way. It makes smart home monitoring easy with devices that alert you to intruders, smoke, carbon monoxide, and water leaks while also enabling home automation features.


Unlike traditional hub systems that rely on a central controller, Zigbee products utilize mesh networking technology allowing devices to communicate with one another. This means, if one relay device or node should fail, the devices can still communicate with another relay device, leaving service, as a whole, uninterrupted.
