ZigBee® is a low-cost, embedded wireless communications solution using small, low-power digital radios for wireless personal area network (WPAN) monitoring and control applications.

It is intended to be simpler and less expensive than other WPANs. ZigBee® is targeted at radio frequency applications requiring low data rate, low power consumption and secure networking, for example wireless headphones connecting with cell phones via short-range radio. It is used in a wide range of applications across several markets such as commercial, industrial, scientific, medical and consumer.

The ZigBee® standard is maintained and published by the ZigBee Alliance, an association of companies working together to develop the ZigBee® specification.
