ZigBee Alliance completes ZigBee building automation standard


The ZigBee Alliance, a global ecosystem of companies
creating wireless solutions for use in energy management, commercial and
consumer applications, announced it has completed development and ratified the
ZigBee Building Automation standard.


ZigBee Building Automation is the global standard for
interoperable products enabling the secure and reliable monitoring and control
of commercial building systems. It is the only BACnet approved wireless mesh
network standard for commercial buildings.


Products using ZigBee Building Automation give building
owners and operators control of more building types, previously unreachable
rooms or sensitive areas, thanks to its low-power wireless operation.


With ZigBee Building Automation, building owners,
operators and tenants can create more efficient buildings and benefit from increased
energy savings. They can also ensure the lowest lifecycle costs with this green
and easy-to-install robust wireless network.


“With ZigBee Building Automation, it is now possible
to eliminate the web of wires required to monitor and manage a building and
maintain all the benefits of BACnet,” said Bob Heile, chairman of the
ZigBee Alliance.


“ZigBee Building Automation provides product
manufacturers with a proven standard to expand their product line and help
their customers adapt for the future.  Only a ZigBee Building Automation
network makes it easier, faster and cheaper for a space to be reconfigured to
meet a new tenant need,” Heile added.


The ZigBee Alliance recently announced it has opened
two new offices in China to drive greater ZigBee adoption and address ZigBee
standards to meet China’s specific needs for its rapidly expanding
infrastructure and growing markets.
