    zigbee requires a membership fee. Some manufacturers use the chipsets, but are not a member. From what I've heard the difference is a single configurable bit that they are not allowed to set (or they'll get sued). That makes the difference for a device being recognized or not as a zigbee device.

    Ok that makes since.
    So I would assume that means it is possible to sniff device networks and make a fairly universal controller none public of course or am I stretching the bubble on the theory

    Thanks,

    That would require a device with 2 zigbee radios, and it could never be sold. So only tinkerers could build one themselves. And then still if it has further limitations (eg. all device discovery disabled for the non-zigbee version) then it still wouldn't work.

    I don't think it will ever work...
