ZigBee technology provides unique features for the deployment of RTLS systems in certain segments and markets. The added possibility of management of all kinds of sensors (temperature, humidity, presence and movement, dangerous gases, electricity consumption,...) and actuators (air conditioning, valves, opening and locking of doors and windows, alarms, control lights and appliances, ... ) enables to provide a complete solution under a single, robust technology
This document briefly describes what is ZigBee, their main characteristics and its implementation as an RTLS system. It includes a description of specific use cases for hotels, supermarkets, healthcare, police, security and vigilance, industry and miners.
In particular describes the n-Core® platform, under ZigBee technology, which supplies a complete development and production environment both for automation services as well for location (RTLS) services.
