brennenstuhl®Connect Zigbee: New possibilities for your Smart Home with radio standard Zigbee
In the Smart Home, we frequently come across another term: Zigbee. Many ask: "What do you need Zigbee for?" and "What is a Zigbee Hub?". The answers are simple. Zigbee is a radio standard, or radio technology. It is therefore used for communication between components via radio protocol.
To use the Zigbee radio standard, a central unit is needed, which is also called a bridge, hub or gateway, depending on the manufacturer. The Zigbee gateway is the bridge between the WLAN router and Zigbee devices. Then other devices that network via the Zigbee radio protocol can be integrated into your brennenstuhl®Connect Smart Home.
What is Zigbee? And is Zigbee compatible with Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant?
Zigbee is a radio standard that connects different devices with each other over short distances - the radio range is up to 20 metres, depending on the power and the environment. The radio standard is needed to enable low energy consumption and battery operation.
Unlike the brennenstuhl®Connect WiFi products, brennenstuhl®Connect Zigbee products communicate with the brennenstuhl®Connect Zigbee gateway via radio protocol. However, this does not cause any disadvantages, the smart Zigbee product can be operated via app or voice control like all other brennenstuhl®Connect Smart Home products.
