ZigBee is a wireless language, and one of the world's most trusted standard protocols in wireless communication. Find out more about the ZigBee standard, and learn why it has become the flagship protocol of Develco Products.
Connecting your world
ZigBee is an open, global standard for wireless communication between IoT devices. With ZigBee, IoT devices can easily be connected to other IoT devices. The ZigBee protocol is secure and stable, which is one of the reasons why it has become one of the world’s most widely adopted protocols.
Connectivity and stability
ZigBee is the ideal choice of protocol for home automation and smart energy, because different ZigBee devices can be connected. As more ZigBee devices are linked, communication paths between devices multiply, eliminating the risk of single-point signal failure.
Besides, ZigBee communicates on a 2.4GHz frequency and supports a data transfer rate of 250kbit/s across 16 different channels. This guarantees that solutions with ZigBee certified products are stable and interference-free.
The ZigBee protocol is very secure, as it uses a strong encryption and three different types of keys to keep devices secure. Furthermore, Develco Products is a member of the ZigBee Alliance, so all our ZigBee certified products meet the requirements of the alliance. These include providing the best functionality with security measures in place. Read more about the security of ZigBee.
Key features of ZigBee
ZigBee is the protocol of choice for world-leading service providers, installers and retailers in smart home and energy management.
The stability of Zigbee comes from its mesh networking, allowing communication from one device to "hop" through other devices until it reaches the gateway.
ZigBee uses AES-128 encryption and three types of keys to keep devices secure.
All ZigBee products can communicate and function together regardless of vendor and models.
By communicating on low frequencies, ZigBee avoids being affected by or causing interference.
ZigBee requires very little power, making it an ideal protocol for battery powered alarms and sensors.
