AlertMe awarded ZigBee certificate

Broadband home monitoring and security service AlertMe has become the first security system to be awarded product certification by the ZigBee Alliance


AlertMe, a broadband home monitoring and security service from Cambidge-based AlertMe.com, has become the first security system to be awarded product certification by the ZigBee Alliance.



AlertMe chief technical officer Paul Fellows said: ‘ZigBee is the perfect fit for our application and we’re delighted to have achieved certification. ZigBee gives us an open, standards-based and future-proof platform, and our manufacturer-specific extensions make installation easy. We are now working with other ZigBee companies to extend our platform and offer new services.’


AlertMe is an internet-based service which communicates with an in-home ZigBee network. Each system incorporates a ZigBee coordinator and twelve ZigBee routers and end devices which are installed around the home.


AlertMe uses ZigBee systems and hardware from Ember, a provider of wireless sensor and control network technologies whose UK headquarters are in Cambridge.
