Combine Solar Panels And #ZigBee For Remote Power Management via @ElectronicDesgn

ZigBee is increasingly becoming a strong solution for the new smart home, providing a reliable and robust connection between home systems like air conditioning and heating, home security, door and window locks, home health monitoring, and energy use monitoring and management, as well as in home entertainment. Various flavors of ZigBee are being used to connect these home subsystems to the cable set-top box (STB). From the STB, they can be directly managed by a ZigBee Radio Frequency for Consumer Electronics (RF4CE) remote control, or by using an Internet connection. A smart phone or other Web-connected device also can be used to control them remotely. And, ZigBee can be used to monitor and control the roof-mounted solar panel systems for homes and small businesses.
