Vesternet have launched what they are describing as the worlds first dedicated ZigBee eCommerce store. With a huge range of ZigBee equipped products plus their own newly developed Zigbox Ethernet gateway and Zigbytes web-based user interface, the site is sure to be of interest to home automators. Read on for the full release.
Vesternet has developed two core products: Zigbox – a compact ZigBee Ethernet gateway plus Zigbytes – a web-based user interface. Together they form the backbone of any network: Zigbox gathers sensor data… & Zigbytes presents it online.
Users then purchase and plug-in multi-vendor ZigBee sensors to build up their own unique solution. These could be power sockets, thermostats, door/window, smoke detectors and more.
The result is that end-users have 24/7 web based access to their ZigBee devices, and as new certified products are released from the many ZigBee partners, these will easily plug into and extend the existing network.
Initially the Vesternet platform will focus on Smart Energy and Home Automation. But later versions will support new ZigBee profiles such as RF4CE, Building Automation and Healthcare.
Aside from the end-user Vesternet platform – also available are individual components & tools for installers, developers, re-sellers & utilities. Vesternet ship worldwide from US & EU locations.
