ziggin Zigbee … current thoughts

04Feb10

I love the idea of power efficient wireless devices or even better some power harvesting battery less design for remote sensors.  Of course all this good techno standard stuff needs to get cheap, aka volume/white-goods style.

But unfortunately as is the case sometimes very good ideas and standards rumble along without moving into mainstream. The question is will they ever succeed ?

I’m afraid after many years watching, using, waiting and now weeping I can’t really see ZigBee landing as the cheap sensor standard.  I can’t find anything cheap and worst there is no open-ness as each ZigBee device gets locked into particular package/system(s).

The ‘dummy’ has officially left the pram !
