Lodging Technology is the originator of infrared sensor-based hotel energy management technology. Lodging Technology needed an easy way to add ZigBee wireless technology to its GEM Link hotel energy management solution. XBee ZB ZigBee OEM RF modules provided a plug-in solution to wirelessly enable sensors, switches and transceivers to control room temperatures. The low-power XBee ZB and extended-range XBee-PRO ZB use the ZigBee PRO Feature Set for advanced mesh networking. By deploying this and any XBee device, OEMs are leveraging the value of the XBee product family and Digi's unsurpassed Drop-in Networking offering of gateways, adapters and routers. In addition, XBee users can take advantage of platform agility - the ability to rapidly change their XBee solution with minimal development.
