The simple, concise guide to the Zigbee standard and architecture: for everyone creating ZigBee wireless control and sensor applications--Helps readers gain a practical understanding of Zigbee architecture even if they have little or no background in networking.-Describes each layer of the Zigbee standard, and demystifies all the concepts and terminology professionals need to understand.-Covers security, address assignment, routing, home automation and smart energy networks, and much more. The low-power Zigbee standard will enable powerful new wireless applications for safety, security, and control, ranging from smart energy to home automation, medical care to advanced remote controls. Rapidly gaining critical mass, Zigbee is now supported by more than 270 companies, including Mitsubishi, Philips, Honeywell, Texas Instruments, Freescale, Motorola, and Samsung. However, the standard is complex, running to more than 600 pages - and, until now, using it has required a deep understanding of networking architecture and protocols. This is the first simple, concise guide to ZigBee architecture, concepts, networking, and applications. ZigBee Wireless Control andthoroughly demystifies ZigBee, giving professionals all the Sensor Networks knowledge they need to start building effective ZigBee solutions. The authors present a complete, easy-to-understand overview of ZigBee technology and its applications, presenting all the information newcomers need, even if they've never worked with other wireless technologies. It details the entire ZigBee protocol stack, and describes how ZigBee rides atop IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and physical layers. They cover security, address assignment, routing, home automation and smart energy applications, ZigBee protocol architecture, and much more.
