What is the ZigBee Alliance?
The Zigbee Alliance was created to develop a set of standards for IoT devices, or wireless home automation devices, that use the Zigbee communication protocol. Its mission is to help simplify, harmonize and build global open standards for the Internet of Things (IoT). Because the group has added other specialties such as smart energy, green power and home entertainment systems—which required expanding beyond the Zigbee protocol and working with other wireless standards—it recently rebranded itself as the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA). One of the core values of the ZigBee Alliance is “Trust” in order to build a more responsible, ethical, sustainable and secure IoT. DigiCert is a member of the ZigBee Alliance.
