Driven by the world’s MSOs, ZigBee is proving its dominance as the Internet of Things connectivity technology for the Smart Home
GreenPeak’s ZigBee Chips are the Beating Heart of the Connected Smart Home
The GreenPeak ZigBee communication chip is the key component of ubiquitous Smart Home applications where all devices are connected. GreenPeak’s advanced technology provides secure, full home coverage and extreme low energy consumption, even allowing light switches without batteries. GreenPeak’s technology is the backbone of the ZigBee sensor network, the “second wireless network for the home,” working well with WiFi. WiFi is the best solution for high data rate content distribution in the home – for communications, internet, movies, TV, etc. ZigBee, essentially low-power WiFi, is the best solution for connecting all the other devices in the home, from lights and light switches, to door locks, from remote controls to thermostats, etc.
The new generations of set-top boxes and gateways are now shipping with ZigBee, in many cases in addition to WiFi. By rolling out ZigBee in the home, operators offer a scalable solution from stand-alone sensors to cloud based services, based on an open industry standard and operating in a worldwide uniform license free frequency band. GreenPeak provides a total solution for the ZigBee Smart Home market and supports all the different ZigBee feature sets.
The McKinsey report on disruptive technologies states that connecting billions of ordinary devices to the Internet will add up to
“Cloud services, smart mobile technologies and wireless sensing and control solutions have filled in the missing pieces for the vision of the Internet of Things,” says Mareca Hatler, ON World's research director. “By 2017, 1 billion RF-ICs will be shipped annually for WSN markets. Over the next five years, 802.15.4 and ZigBee will make up the largest market share.”
“GreenPeak is shipping now close to 1 million ZigBee chips per week,” says
