The ZigBee Alliance is a group of companies which create wireless solutions for use in energy management, commercial and consumer applications. The Alliance developed a new open standard designed for LED lighting control, ZigBee Light Link. According to the alliance, the new standard will help manufacturers develop lighting and control products, giving resellers and consumers a wide selection of interoperable wirelessly controlled lighting products for the home.
The ZigBee Alliance claims that it is creating a standard that will be as easy to use as a common dimmer switch. The alliance says that LED light bulbs, LED fixtures, sensors, timers, remotes and switches built using ZigBee Light Link will not require special devices to coordinate in a home’s network.
