ZigBee SmartEnergy 2.0 Draft is available for public comments.

Has ZigBee gone too far with the internet of things? I know NIST has basically mandated TCP/IP for the smart grid -- but does my thermostat really need to provide a web page? Me thinks the Consumer Electronics folks will have a difficult time swallowing this...

SAN RAMON, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The ZigBee® Alliance, a global ecosystem of companies creating wireless solutions for use in energy management, residential, commercial and consumer electronics applications, today announced it has made the draft 0.7 document of ZigBee Smart Energy™ version 2.0 available for public download and comment. This draft is being provided in conjunction with the Alliance's previously announced commitment to collect public comments on the standard in addition to the input from the broad stakeholder community already actively engaged in its development. The release of the draft 0.7 document has been accelerated to meet the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards review timeline.

Time will tell.
