ZigBee Input Device Features  


FLEXIBILITY
  • Supports standardized report descriptors for simplicity of manufacture
  • Other descriptors can be created using the report descriptor language
  • Host can be embedded in other products or computer based
  • Provides both control and interrupt pipe mechanisms for normal use or low latency data
  • Supports multi-touch and gesture commands

EASE OF USE

  • Simple push-button pairing
  • Proxying for remote human input devices
  • Devices define a simple set of attributes later expanded by the proxy into full descriptors
  • Security mechanism is automatically configured, providing secure data transfers

STANDARDIZED COMMANDS

  • Utilizes standard report mechanism
  • Provides human input device implementation
  • Supports all service requests
  • Reports can be interpreted by standard drivers

STANDARDS BASED

  • Open standard supports competitive marketplace of multiple interoperable platforms and lower cost solutions
  • Easy to use
  • Affordable

OVER THE AIR UPGRADES AND PROGRAMMABILITY OPTION

  • Manufacturers can upgrade firmware to add new features after products have shipped
  • Reduce memory footprint in devices and reduce costs
  • Reduce product returns or service calls by fixing issues after product ships
  • Consumers can enjoy product enhancements after product has been installed
  • Consumers can buy with confidence, knowing that future products can be supported

INTERFERENCE AVOIDANCE MECHANISMS

  • Manufacturers can avoid product returns due to interference from surrounding products
  • Consumers can place equipment almost anywhere
