Application and Development of Zigbee Technology for Smart Grid Environment


In the next few years, the home energy management system trend of the smart home will become increasingly evident. From the application and development of recent years, the Bluetooth and Zigbee are the most valued by the industry. Of these two kinds of technology, Zigbee supports low cost and more number of nodes, and with its low power consumption, it is bound to become a major communication feature for the smart home technology. Because Zigbee SEP2.0 specification support multiple network technology features, a product can become compatible with a variety of communication methods to connect with the home network and achieve home automation of functional requirements, facilitating maximum performance of wireless applications.
