Zigbee Light Link

Smart, easy-to-use lighting control designed for consumers.

Zigbee Light Link gives the lighting industry a global standard for interoperable and very easy-to-use consumer lighting and control products. It allows consumers to gain wireless control over all their LED fixtures, light bulbs, timers, remotes and switches. Products using this standard will let consumers change lighting remotely to reflect ambiance, task or season, all while managing energy use and making their homes greener.Products built using this standard are as easy-to-use as a common dimmer switch. The standard does not require any special devices to coordinate with the lighting network, making it both easy and intuitive for consumers to use every day. Plus, it makes adding or even removing products to the lighting network a quick and easy. Zigbee Light Link products earning the Zigbee Certified seal are the industry’s only networked consumer lighting products offering simplicity and interoperability.
