Rockville,MD & Seoul -- The ZigBee Alliance's Open House in Seoul, Korea, featured the unveiling by Airbee today of the industry's first ZigBee-ready thermostat and automated water timer with Airbee-ZMAC(TM) software for unwired networking(TM). As a breakthrough product for home and building automation, Airbee's pioneering technology will significantly reduce the cost and time of installing home and office environmental control systems.
Airbee showcased its intelligent embedded software for wireless home automation networks using Rite Temp 8082 programmable thermostats. Airbee also demonstrated the versatility and reliability of its embedded software in a Rite Time automated water timer for optimized environmental monitoring and conservation of natural resources.
"Smart homes today still have wires, but Airbee's intelligent software will transform the smart home into an intelligent, unwired home. The dawn of Life Unwired(TM) is now here," said Srini Krishnamurthy, Airbee's vice president of business development. "Once again, Airbee has proven that our intelligent embedded software is platform independent, reliably interoperable with different radios and microprocessors, and quick-to-deploy for mass market applications like home environmental control systems."
Airbee's wireless networking solutions adhere to the ZigBee specifications and represent one of the industry's first hardware-independent software products. Airbee brings unique software solutions with a ZigBee protocol stack that has the ability to interface with any controller and any IEEE 802.15.4 radio solution. This breakthrough approach is expected to be critical as the ZigBee roll-out continues in commercial and home automation.
