The Connected Lighting Alliance endorses ZigBee 3.0 as the preferred common open standard for residential connected lighting applications, simplifying choices for both lighting companies and consumers.
Wireless lighting systems enable home owners to gain control over all their LED lighting fixtures and associated components including timers, remotes and switches. Residential users are able to easily switch, dim and change the colour of their lighting to fit the time of day, task or desired ambiance. Wireless lighting enriches the customer experience, in a very simple manner.
To enable easy-to-install wireless lighting systems, The Connected Lighting Alliance has now endorsed the new ZigBee 3.0 open standard. This supports a wide array of lighting features, and ensures product interoperability.
The Connected Lighting Alliance [TCLA] announced the endorsement of ZigBee 3.0, as the preferred open standard for residential connected lighting applications, simplifying choices for both lighting companies and consumers. With ZigBee Light Link, previously endorsed by TCLA, being merged in to the new ZigBee 3.0 standard, the TCLA member companies studied and evaluated the new proposition. The conclusion was that ZigBee 3.0 exceeds the benefits of ZigBee Light Link and that therefore the new ZigBee 3.0 better meets the requirements of the lighting industry in the residential market.
Following eight months of close collaboration between its member companies to study and evaluate multiple open standards, The Connected Lighting Alliance concluded that ZigBee Light Link enables easy-to-install wireless lighting systems, natively supports a wide array of lighting features, and ensures product interoperability.
