ZigBee Alliance completes ZigBee building automation standard

September 27, 2011 - The ZigBee Alliance—a “global ecosystem” of companies creating wireless solutions for use in energy management, commercial and consumer applications—has completed development and ratified the ZigBee Building Automation standard. It is the global standard for interoperable products enabling monitoring and control of commercial building systems, and it is the only BACnet-approved wireless mesh network standard for commercial buildings, adds the alliance. Products using ZigBee Building Automation give building owners and operators control of more building types, previously unreachable rooms or sensitive areas, says ZigBee, thanks to its low-power wireless operation. The standard was developed by numerous Alliance members, with major assistance coming from Convergence Wireless, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Ingersoll-Rand and Ubilogix.
