“We attribute much of the increase in ZigBee-certified products to the alliance’s focus on developing standards that address specific market needs,” said Bob Heile, chair of the alliance. “ZigBee offers much more than just point-to-point connectivity found in many wireless offerings today. ZigBee builds the true ‘Internet of Things’. The ZigBee Certified program assures buyers of all types that every product wearing the ZigBee Certified logo performs reliably and delivers the features and functionality defined by our standards.”
ZigBee standards have been adopted by more than 350 global manufacturers, says the alliance; the list of ZigBee standards, now at 10, appeal to “manufacturers wanting to offer their customers smart, green and easy-to-use products on an interactive wireless sensor and control network”.
