ZigBee

ZigBee Specification

The public document of the ZigBee Alliance which defines the ZigBee Specificaion, and in particular the ZigBee Device Objects (ZDO). The document has been used for designing and developement the of zigbee.basedriver.api , zigbee.basedriver , zigbee.dongle.api bundles.

ZigBee Home Automation

The public document of the ZigBee Alliance which defines the ZigBee Home Automation (HA). It is the document that has guided the development of zigbee.ha.driver bundle.

ZigBee Cluster Library

The public document of the ZigBee Alliance which defines the ZigBee Cluster Library (ZCL). It is the document that has guided the development of zigbee.zcl.library bundle.

Useful Tools

Serial Port Sniffer

PortMon

Portmon is a utility that monitors and displays all serial and parallel port activity on a system. It has advanced filtering and search capabilities that make it a powerful tool for exploring the way Windows works, seeing how applications use ports, or tracking down problems in system or application configurations.

NOTE: It requires WinXP or higher

HDD Free Serial Monitor

A nice software for Windows that allows you to collect all the traffic that goes trough the serial port. It is useful for debugging the session and to compare the actual behaviour of an hardware with respect to its documentation.

The software licenses was free for use at the time of writing.

ZigBee Radio Sniffer

SmartRF Protocol Packet Sniffer

It runs on natively on Windows and it works with Texas Instrument hardware. It provides a nice graphical view of the ZigBee traffic. In particular, it parses the packet and also provide a timeline view of all the packets. The software runs on Linux too only for reading back sniffer log files.

The software licenses was free for use at the time of writing.

Z-Tool

Z-Tool 2.0

Is is a piece of software distributed within the Texas Instrument Z-Stack package, it allows the user to send single messages to the dongle. It result really handy for debugging the dongle (i.e. find out that dongle documentation doesn't reflect the actual behavior).
