ZigBee 3.0 simplifies the choice for developers creating Internet of Things products and services. It delivers all the features of ZigBee while unifying the ZigBee application standards found in tens of millions of devices delivering benefits to consumers today. ZigBee 3.0 standard enables communication and interoperability among devices for smart homes, connected lighting, and other markets so more diverse, fully interoperable solutions can be delivered by product developers and service providers.
ZigBee 3.0 is based on IEEE 802.15.4, which operates at 2.4 GHz (a frequency available for use around the world) and uses ZigBee PRO networking to enable reliable communication in the smallest, lowest-power devices.
The ZigBee Alliance has always believed that true interoperability comes from standardization at all levels of the network, especially the application level which most closely touches the user. Everything from joining a network to device operations like on and off are defined so devices from different vendors can work together seamlessly.
ZigBee 3.0 defines more than 130 devices and the widest range of devices types including home automation, lighting, energy management, smart appliance, security, sensors, and health care monitoring products. It supports both easy-to-use DIY installations as well as professionally installed systems. All current device types, commands, and functionality defined in current ZigBee PRO-based standards are available in the ZigBee 3.0.
ZigBee 3.0 certification is now available to Alliance members.
