I have had to read a lot of technical books lately, and this one does a good job. Zigbee is rather complex, and this book gives a very good, understandable overall description of the technology. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about the Zigbee protocol.

I am looking to replace my current X-10 home automation system. To the best of my knowledge, X-10 parts are no longer made, and prices have gone up drastically. Zigbee is not plug and play at this point, and electronics is not my strong point. But I think there is better compatibility between manufacturers of Xbee and Zigbee products (as long as you stay in the same series) than there is with Insteon. So I will probably go with this mesh network. There are a lot of simple project plans available on the net. There are Arduino shields for this technology. My interests are weather, controlling lights where I have power, but standard switches would be problematic (I live in a contemporary log.) I also use X-10 to control a lower level pellet stove based on temperatures in the third level bedroom. I will convert this over to Zigbee, along with other sensors and controls.

Overall, this book fails to clearly explain the current ZigBee specifications.
And many figures are incorrect and formatting is inconsistent.
It will be hard to recommend this book for the engineers who want to more easily understand the ZigBee specifications without reading the spec documents themselves.

I purchased this book expecting something useful but instead it is about as good as just pouring through RFC's. No substance whatsoever.

You expect this book on a University book list as one of the boring texts that you would have to wade through in a comms engineering class.

An excellent book on the subject of ZigBee is Fred Eady's book.
It explains in great detail in a nuts and bolts approach and explains all the pitfalls as well.

I find this book very easy to read and has just the information I am looking for. I would have preferred a later version of ZB for review, but this is adequate.
