An Overview of Wireless Sensor Networks Using Zigbee Technology
ZigBee is a standard suite of high level protocols designed for reliable wireless networked monitoring and control. It is an IEEE 802.15.4 standard for low cost, low data rate wireless networks includes features like scalability, self-organizing, self-healing. ZigBee is an advanced technology uses low data rate, low power radios for designing and implementation of PAN. The ZigBee aims simpler and low costing, low power devices with low data rate to form a wireless network. The tiny devices, also called nodes, used in such networks are economical and deployed widely in controlling and monitoring applications.
