The technology

Mature full-stack wireless standard

 Zigbee 3.0 is a complete IoT solution – specifying from the PHY layer, the IEEE802.15.4 up to the application layer called Zigbee cluster library. The networking layer (Zigbee PRO) provides a secure and robust mesh networking technology.

While the unifying the Zigbee application layer found in millions of products on the market today. This enables customers to create multi-vendor ecosystems and Zigbee alliance have certified over 2500 products to date. It is a solution targeting multiple market, including smart home, building, industrial, retail, health, and more

Software development kit

For Zigbee

nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee

nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee is a complete solution  for building Thread 1.1 and Zigbee 3.0 certified products. It utilizes the the multiprotocol capabilities of the nRF52833 and nRF52840 wireless SoCs. This enables single-chip application development supporting both Bluetooth LE and Thread or Zigbee, concurrently. It also has limited support for the nRF52811.
