ZigBee Alliance ratifies Light Link standard for LED lighting
The ZigBee Alliance has ratified the Light Link standard, that offers wireless control for LED lighting, writes Steve Bush.
“Energy efficient light bulbs, LED fixtures, sensors, timers, remotes and switches built using ZigBee Light Link will connect into a single network, without special devices to coordinate the network,” claimed the alliance. “Consumers will be able to install products and add extra devices to their lighting network.”
According to the Alliance, GE, Greenwave Reality, Osram Sylvania and Philips cooperated to create the standard, and TRaC Global has already tested to the standard for products submitted by Atmel, Ember, Osram, Philips and Texas Instruments.
“These implementations will serve as golden units against which future ZigBee Certified products using this standard will be tested,” said the Alliance.
