The article focuses on ZigBee, the low-power short-range wireless mesh technology standardized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It says that utility firms and their suppliers are starting to use the technology as a way of monitoring in-building power use to help reduce utility use during worrisome periods. It uses license-free 2.4 GHz spectrum and was established to offer very low power consumption at low cost and relatively low data rates.
