FAQ
What protocol is Zigbee based on?

As we have mentioned in the article, it is based on IEEE 802.15. 4. This is a widely accepted standard that defines the functioning of LR-WPAN.

What makes Zigbee the best protocol for IoT solutions?

Zigbee allows the creation of affordable and energy-efficient networks that are easy to scale. Using it, you can create a secure network that consists of a large number of devices.

Why is the Zigbee protocol often used for creating IoT home automation solutions?

It’s convenient to use Zigbee technology in IoT solutions for home automation, as devices in such networks don’t need to communicate often. Besides, they are located close to each other. Zigbee allows the creation of power-efficient solutions using battery-powered devices.

What problems may I face when using the Zigbee protocol in wireless IoT networks?

When using the Zigbee protocol in IoT networks, you might notice that some devices become invisible in the network. In addition, you might find it challenging to connect devices released by different manufacturers into a single network.
