That’s not all, our gateway also allows you to access and add Bluetooth devices. 


Protocol and Range ZigBee works with the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol over 2.4 GHz. The radio protocol was developed and ratified back in 2003 specifically for low-cost, battery-powered devices. 

In contrast to WLAN, for example, the ZigBee range is somewhat smaller at 10-100 meters indoors because it consumes less power. This allows battery-powered devices to run longer . However, the smaller range is basically irrelevant. The devices form a so-called mesh network. This means that each node passes on the signal. This makes a range of several 100 meters possible.

Communication via mesh networks  Unlike Bluetooth, ZigBee does not rely on point-to-point communication, but communicates via a mesh network. Here, several devices take on the role of a ZigBee router or ZigBee repeater. They therefore not only send the signals back to the sender, but also repeat and forward them to the other devices in the vicinity.

As a result, mesh networks have a greater range and higher reliability than conventional star networks.

In conclusion, the iHelios Zigbee Gateway is a cutting-edge solution that empowers homeowners to create a smarter, more efficient living environment. With its advanced features, seamless integration, and user-friendly interface, this device is at the forefront of the smart home revolution.
