Elelabs ZigBee Shield

What is it?

Elelabs ZigBee Raspberry Pi Shield is designed specifically for Raspberry Pi (1,2,3). It is based on EM357 SiLabs chip, which is a 2.4-GHz IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee microcontroller. It is preprogrammed with Network CoProcessor firmware and provides UART interface to Raspberry Pi to form and manage ZigBee network, as well as communicate with ZigBee devices easily.

Why did we make it?

When creating Elelabs ZigBee Raspberry Pi Shield our goal was to make an affordable and easy-to-use product for Do-It-Yourself makers and hackers. As nowadays a lot of companies have their Smart Home solutions with ZigBee: Philips Hue, Ikea Tradfri, Xiaomi Aqara and others. Using Elelabs ZigBee Raspberry Pi Shield you can directly communicate with these devices, without their default gateway, so you can build your own tailored for your needs application.
