ZigBee is a wireless network protocol specifically designed for low data rate sensors and control networks. There are a number of applications that can benefit from the ZigBee protocol: building automation networks, home security systems, industrial control networks, remote metering and PC peripherals are some of the many possible applications.

This application note is specifically designed to assist you in adopting the ZigBee protocol for your application. You can use the Microchip Stack for the ZigBee protocol provided in this application note to quickly build your application. To illustrate the usage of the Stack, several working demo applications are included. You can use these demo applications as a reference or simply modify and adopt them to your requirements.
