|The mission of the ZigBee Working Group is to bring about the existence
of a broad range of interoperable consumer devices by establishing open
industry specifications for unlicensed, untethered peripheral, control and
entertainment devices requiring the lowest cost and lowest power
consumption communications between compliant devices anywhere in and
around the home.
To access the ZigBee Specification, you need to complete the ZigBee
