Industry standards[edit]

Wireless sensor applications prosper best within the sphere of industry standards. Standards offer OEMs the freedom to purchase from a larger pool of suppliers and most importantly, standards allow devices from different vendors to interoperate, a feature which is paramount in applications ranging from building automation to industrial automation.

GreenPeak's development is based on open industry standards and based on the IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network standard and supports the open global standards of the ZigBee Alliance
