SAN RAMON, California, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The ZigBee Alliance, a global ecosystem of organizations creating wireless solutions for use in energy management, commercial and consumer applications, today announced that there are now more than 1,000 ZigBee Certified products available to the market, demonstrating the rising demand for the Internet of Things.

ZigBee standards have been implemented in products developed by more than 400 global manufacturers. The rising number of Alliance members and ZigBee Certified products is a reflection of market demand. In fact, analysts from Research and Markets have forecasted that the global ZigBee enabled devices market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of more than 67 percent from 2014-2018.

The ZigBee Certified program ensures that quality, interoperable ZigBee products are available for product manufacturers and their customers. The program focuses on two areas, the ZigBee Compliant Platform program and the ZigBee Certified Product program. The ZigBee Compliant Platform program evaluates all platforms before they can be engineered into products, including testing for compliance to a ZigBee specification. The ZigBee Certified Product program tests any product using an Alliance-developed standard, ensuring that the product is fully compliant to the standard.

"The rise to 1,000 certified products is the result of ZigBee's prominence in the booming Internet of Things industry," said Tobin J.M. Richardson, President and CEO of the ZigBee Alliance. "ZigBee is the only standards-based wireless technology designed to address the unique needs of device-to-device communication in just about any market, and the more than 400 member companies consistently certifying new products with ZigBee are a testament to that fact."

ZigBee members continue to experience success, delivering tens of millions of devices to a variety of markets including:

Smart Home
ZigBee is the only global, standards-based wireless solution that can conveniently and affordably control the widest range of devices to improve comfort, security and convenience for consumers. ZigBee enjoys strong adoption in the smart home driven by consumers purchasing through retail stores such as Staples and Lowes, telecommunication companies such as Comcast, Deutsche Telekom and EchoStar, and directly from home automation companies including LeGrand, Schneider, and many others.

Connected Lighting
ZigBee continues to drive interoperable and very easy-to-use consumer lighting and control products allowing consumers to gain wireless control over all their LED fixtures, light bulbs, remotes and switches. Recent announcements by GE, OSRAM, Philips, Busch Jaeger and others demonstrate the growing dominance of ZigBee for connected lighting.

The Connected Lighting Alliance, comprising almost all the major global lighting vendors, has endorsed ZigBee Light Link as the preferred standard for residential lighting applications. This decision represents the first time an alliance of leading lighting companies has unanimously endorsed a common open standard for wireless lighting solutions.

Energy Management
ZigBee is already installed in tens of millions of smart meters today and continues to be the standard of choice for utilities around the world. For instance, Great Britain will begin its Smart Metering Implementation Programme which will lead to the replacement of 53 million meters in homes and small businesses across Great Britain with smart electricity and gas meters by 2020.
