ZIGBEE COMMUNICATION Introduction: ZigBee is a new wireless technology that looks to have applications in a variety of fields. ZigBee is a technological standard based on the IEEE 802.15.4 specification for low data rates in the Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) radio bands. The technology allows for devices to communicate with one another with very low power consumption, allowing the devices to run on simple batteries for several years. ZigBee is targeting various forms of automation, as the low data rate communication is ideal for sensors, monitors, and the like. Home automation is one of the key market areas for ZigBee, with an example of a simple network shown below .

ZigBee is designed for wireless controls and sensors. It could be built into just about anything you have around your home or office, including lights, switches, doors and appliances. These devices can then interact without wires, and you can control them all . . . from a remote control or even your mobile phone. Although ZigBee's underlying radio-communication technology isn't revolutionary, it goes well beyond single-purpose wireless devices, such as garage door openers and "The Clapper" that turns light on and off. It allows wireless two-way communications between lights and switches, thermostats and furnaces, hotel-room air-conditioners and the front desk, and central command posts. It travels across greater distances and handles many sensors that can be linked to perform different tasks. Figure 1 below gives a great example of how ZigBee can be applied.
