Düsseldorf, Germany – September 6, 2016. German manufacturer of ZigBee solutions, ubisys, has received ZigBee 3.0 certification for its leading product line-up, which includes the ubisys Gateway G1, Universal Dimmer D1, Shutter Controller J1 and Router R0. ubisys is the first company to successfully complete the rigorous ZigBee Certified 3.0 product testing program.

“We are extremely excited to have created what are the world’s first certified ZigBee 3.0 products, underlining our leading role in the evolution of ZigBee 3.0,” stated Dr. Arasch Honarbacht, lead R&D, founder and co-owner of ubisys. “We’re proud to be the first company to implement all the required ‘ingredients’ for a ZigBee 3.0 product. It’s an important milestone for us as a company and the overall ZigBee 3.0 effort, which we expect will enjoy a steady pace of momentum moving forward.”

“We applaud ubisys for being the first Alliance member to achieve ZigBee 3.0 certification on their products,” said Victor Berrios, Vice President of Technology, ZigBee Alliance. “Their participation, leadership and support of the ZigBee 3.0 platform and our organization’s overall mission in the marketplace is much appreciated, and we look forward to their next round of innovative smart home products and solutions.”

With ZigBee 3.0, customers can expect seamless interoperability between ZigBee 3.0 products from different manufacturers as well as higher security, more reliable connections to battery-powered devices and support for battery-less, energy harvesting switches and sensors. “We expect that many vendors will join this important effort and provide ZigBee 3.0 products to offer consumers a better IoT experience. As products and platforms evolve, we’ll provide the 3.0 firmware editions via over-the-air upgrades to existing products,” Honarbacht added.
