Ikea Tradfri, Philips Hue, Xiaomi Mijia: ZigBee In Common


What the hell is Zigbee? Do I really need to care about it? It is mainly used by expensive devices like the Philips Hue system for people with deep pockets? This is what I thought until now. But I have indications that this changed. Let's have a closer look.
We all know Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 433MHz, and LoRa devices and probably already use some of them. So, what is Zigbee? How does it fit into the other technologies, and how can we get a head start with it? Let's play with the technology and learn how it works and whether and where it can be useful for us. Or if we can skip this one.
