Zigbee vs Zigbee Pro

Have you recently been browsing our smart home products and found yourself confused between standard Zigbee and Zigbee Pro Series smart devices? Well, we’re here to help. In this article, we’ll be explaining how Ajax Online’s Zigbee and Zigbee Pro Series devices compare, and what exactly makes them different.

What is Zigbee Technology?

Zigbee is a protocol used to link smart devices like lights, plugs, and smart locks to a home network. You need to link your Zigbee network to a hub which will act as a “bridge” to the Internet, offering cloud tools, apps, and (remote) control from your phone.

Why Choose Zigbee?

Zigbee places far less strain on your Wifi network, providing you with a much faster and more secure connection.

Unlike traditional hub systems, in which devices communicate to a central controller, our Zigbee products use mesh networking technology. This allows devices to communicate with one another. Therefore, if one relay device should fail, the devices can communicate with another relay device, leaving service uninterrupted as a whole.

At Ajax Online, our customers love using Zigbee and it has fast become more popular than the regular wifi smart products. For this reason, we wanted to deliver a range that takes Zigbee to the next level, and that’s where our Zigbee Pro range comes in, a more advanced version of our standard Zigbee devices.

What is the difference between Zigbee Pro Series Devices and Standard Zigbee Devices?

At Ajax Online, we offer two types of Zigbee enabled devices, first being standard Zigbee 3.0, which is the more widely used protocol. The second being Zigbee Pro, our own proprietary chip, which allows you to pair the device to a physical remote in addition to all the things the standard Zigbee 3.0 offers.

The Ajax Online Zigbee Pro range provides you with everything that standard Zigbee has to offer, as well as a few added extras such as higher lumens, more durability and wider compatibility.

Standard Zigbee delivers great performance at an affordable price and is a sound investment for those who want to make their home smarter. Meanwhile, our Zigbee Pro range is ideal for people who are looking to upgrade their smart system with something a little more advanced.

Enhanced Control Capabilities With Zigbee Pro

When releasing our Zigbee pro range, we not only wanted to bring you updated versions of our beloved products, we also wanted to give our customers more control over their home. Therefore as part of our pro range, we introduced the Zigbee Pro 4 zone remote; a high tech remote system, that keeps you in control of your smart devices.

When choosing Zigbee pro, there’s no need to rely on voice or app control, you can sync your device with a 4 zone remote and control your devices from anywhere in your home. Perfect for guests or those who prefer more manual control. Access all of your amazing smart features with a quick and simple set up.

The Zigbee Pro Remote allows you to assign up to 4 zones in your home. Enabling you to control areas of your home separately. Should you need more than 4 zones, you can connect to multiple remotes, perfect for those with larger spaces.
