Zigbee Alliance Controls your Wireless World

Zigbee 125x86 Zigbee Alliance Controls your Wireless World

Zigbee Alliance

We have smart phones, smart meters, smart fridges, smart washers, smart cars and more. We need a central hub to collect and report the Eco-footprint. That is where the Zigbee Alliance comes in.

A device (works with most homes) creates a central hub to pair with and communicate to these smart devices. That way if a fridge is using too much power, you can reconfigure when it gets defrosted, when it runs.

The Zigbee Alliance is working to make this a standard. Some appliances already have the Zigbee connectivity. GE is working with Zigbee standards – as shown in our live video coverage.
