Zigbee Smart Energy:
ZigBee Smart Energy (SE) is a standard for interconnecting and interoperating devices, via radio frequency, directed towards monitoring, managing, and automating energy, gas, and water usage.
It seeks to be a useful tool for creating “Green Homes”, and is aimed at coordinating energy usage, and optimizing its generation and consumption.
ZigBee SE is a world-leading standard widely used for smart metering (electricity, gas, and water) and home automation (wireless domotics).
ZigBee is a simple data transmission protocol designed to be used as a low-rate wireless personal area network (LR-WPAN). Based on the IEEE 802.15.
ZigBee smart energy is designed for a large range of IoT applications including smart homes, remote controls, and healthcare systems. It supports a wide range of network topologies including star, peer-to-peer, or cluster tree.
These stack profiles support full mesh networking and work with different applications allowing implementations with low memory and processing power.
ZigBee Pro offers more features including security using symmetric-key exchange, scalability using stochastic address assignment, and better performance using efficient many-to-one routing mechanisms.
