ZigBee or IEEE 802.15.4 is considered as a unique communication standard developed for wireless personal area network. Zigbee is a Low-Rate (LR) communication network which provides flexibility, very low power consumption, ease of installation, reliable data transfer, short range operation, acceptable battery life, low data rate in an ad hoc self-organizing network among inexpensive fixed, and portable moving devices. It is developed for applications with relaxed throughput requirements which cannot handle the power consumption of heavy protocol stacks.
