The Zigbee Alliance has announced there are now more than 3,000 Zigbee Certified products and Zigbee Compliant Platforms available to the market. This milestone highlights the growing market for interconnected products for smart homes and buildings. “Hitting the 3,000th certification demonstrates how collaborating across brands and standards is what’s helping our market flourish as everyone wants choice and the ability to easily connect devices to one another,” said Jon Harros, Director of Certification and Testing Programs, Zigbee Alliance.
“Our member companies work in different areas of the IoT realm yet come together to drive innovation and development through Zigbee Certification. Each qualified product and platform further expands the interoperability universe for us all,” said Harros.
The Zigbee Alliance Certification program ensures that quality, interoperable Zigbee products are available for product developers, ecosystem vendors, service providers and their customers. Certifications for Zigbee 3.0 products are on the rise, and, according to the Zigbee alliance, this uptick is a clear indicator that major market influencers are choosing “open” for their IoT product designs.
LEEDARSON, a one-stop ODM shop that offers an array of IoT devices, is one of the top member companies leveraging the Zigbee Certified program to ensure they deliver high quality, interoperable lighting and IoT devices to market. LEEDARSON is also the first organization to earn certification for a Zigbee 3.0 lightbulb.
Amazon claimed the 3,000th Zigbee Certified product spot with their 2nd Generation Echo Show. The Echo Show features a built-in smart home hub that easily connects to Zigbee-based light bulbs, door locks, sensors and more.
This certification milestone is the resulting work from hundreds of global manufacturers and developers that have designed products using Zigbee-based standards for the smart home, building, and connected city environments.
