Sensors, the nerve centre of smart homes.

A Zigbee home automation system uses sensors to gather information about the environment in your home and then uses that information to control different devices or appliances. Let's say you have a Zigbee system set up in your house, and you have sensors placed in different rooms. Human presence sensor
These sensors can be of different types, such as motion sensors, temperature sensors, or door/window sensors. Each sensor, often small and discrete has a specific job to do. For example, a motion sensor detects when someone enters a room or moves around, a temperature sensor measures the temperature and humidity in a room, and a door/window sensor detects when a door or window is opened or closed. Now, when these sensors detect something, they send signals or messages using Zigbee technology.
Zigbee is a wireless communication standard designed specifically for low-power devices like sensors that can run for 12 months on battery. These signals or messages contain information about what the sensor has detected. For instance, if a motion sensor detects movement in a room, it will send a message saying, "Motion detected in Room A" to the Zigbee home automation system. Temperature Humidity sensor The Zigbee home automation system receives these messages from the sensors and processes them. It understands the information provided by the sensors and can take appropriate actions based on that information. For example, if the motion sensor detects movement in a room, the Zigbee system might turn on the lights in that room automatically. In summary, sensors in a Zigbee home automation system collect information about the environment, such as motion, temperature, or the status of doors/windows. They send this information wirelessly using Zigbee technology to the central Zigbee system, which then processes the information and controls various devices or appliances in your home accordingly. This allows you to automate different aspects of your home and make it more convenient and efficient.
