Today’s home networks often include both wired and wireless systems that control numerous devices, including security systems, lighting, HVAC, home telecare applications, and home entertainment systems. These networked devices require low-power, high-performance technology platforms and robust and reliable solutions. This paper discusses Ember’s ZigBee technology, which, together with ARM processors, is enabling the digital home with low-power wireless solutions that solve the unique needs of monitoring, control, and sensor network applications.
