POPP ZB-Stick (Zigbee) is designed for general usage with PCs, laptops or single board computers like Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Odroid, Orange Pi and others. It is based on EFR32MG1 SiLabs chip, which is a 2.4-GHz, IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee microcontroller.
POPP ZB-Stick (Zigbee) is preprogrammed with Network CoProcessor firmware and provides USB interface through CP2102N USB-UART bridge. When plugged into a computer it’s shown as a Serial Port. You can buy smart home devices that usually use IoT technology.
With an increasing number of Zigbee devices: Philips Hue, Osram, Iris, Ikea Tradfri, Xiaomi Aqara, and others – it’s interesting to use these products for Do It Yourself scenarios. Using the POPP ZB-Stick (Zigbee) you can directly communicate with these devices, using programming languages like Node.js, Python, and C or using ready to go plugins for different Home Automation platforms.
