Zigbee is a wireless smart home technology that allows devices to communicate with each other in a mesh network. Zigbee is one of the best protocols for smart home because it has several advantages over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Some of these advantages are:
- Zigbee uses less power than Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, which means Zigbee devices can run on batteries for years without needing to be replaced or recharged.
- Zigbee can cover large distances and areas, as each device acts as a repeater(not battery powered devices) and extends the range of the network. Zigbee can reach up to 100 meters indoors and 300 meters outdoors.
- Zigbee is compatible with many brands and products, as it is supported by over 400 tech firms that are part of the Zigbee Alliance. Zigbee devices can also work together with voice assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri, through a compatible smart home hub.
- Zigbee is secure and reliable, as it uses encryption and authentication to protect the data transmitted between devices. Zigbee also operates on the 2.4 GHz band, which is less crowded than the 5 GHz band used by Wi-Fi.
- Zigbee can work without cloud, using ZHA or Zigbee2mqtt for connection to Home Assistant and to connection to devices of other brands.
- Zigbee gateways can store your saved automations and scenarios locally and those can work even when there is no internet connection.
