ZigBee Updates Smart Energy Standard
Many have predicted that the ZigBee will be the wireless communications technology of choice in our smart grid world. It at least appears it will be used between two-way communicating smart meters being rolled out and smart appliances that will receive pricing signals from electric utilities and delay cycles to save consumers energy.
The ZigBee Alliance has announced an update to ZigBee Smart Energy version 1 that appears to make utility smart grid rollouts much more feasible. It is now available for product development and public download.
