Course Description

Hello learners, Welcome to MAKERDEMY's “Introduction to ZigBee” course.

This is an introductory course on the ZigBee Protocol. Do you know what Apple, Amazon, and Google have in common? It is ZigBee. Apple, Amazon, and Google have come together to come up with a unified connectivity standard based on ZigBee. Want to learn what makes the ZigBee Protocol so cool?

This course is a ONE STOP DESTINATION for an easy introduction to ZigBee. By the end of the course, you would have internalized all the concepts behind the ZigBee protocol and its features. You would have implemented 3 mini projects and 2 major projects using the XBee Boards, Raspberry Pi, and the ESP32, across various operating modes, firmware types, network topologies, and even implement a Cloud Solution. At the end of the course, you will be in a position to come up with your own ZigBee Solutions.

Throughout the course, we have provided a curated collection of original resources. These resources include links to documents for in-depth learning, links, videos, and more. At MAKERDEMY, we have a dedicated instructor team who will promptly answer any of your course-related queries. So, what are you waiting for?! Come, join me in this course. I'm looking forward to being your instructor, and to teach you the fundamentals about ZigBee.
