Zigbee Test Tool (ZTT)

Our Zigbee-authorized labs developed the original software for the Zigbee 3.1 Test Tool (ZTT) to reduce the time, cost and frequency of testing before final testing and certification.

The Zigbee Alliance has adopted this test tool (ZTT) as their only formally recognized tool for Zigbee 3.1 certification. The Alliance now requires all of its authorized test houses to use this tool (ZTT) developed by Element. 


Zigbee testing - pre-testing methodology

Element’s engineers offer guidance and technical input during the development phase to ensure that the design supports the requirements for Zigbee compliance. If needed, a dedicated engineer can come on-site to assess finished products and guide you through the relevant specifications for Zigbee testing.

Zigbee testing protocol

When products are ready for certification, Element provides formal protocol testing to specifications and standards defined by the Zigbee Certified program.


We leverage our expertise to provide advice and guidance during testing and can assist in debugging problem areas that arise during evaluation. Our Zigbee testing experts arrange testing to the latest Zigbee technologies and Zigbee alliance standards.

Zigbee certification alliance

As a fully authorized Zigbee test house, a Notified Body for radio, EMC and safety testing in Europe, and a TCB for the FCC, we can assist with navigating the legal regulations of the global market and attaining a Zigbee alliance certification. Element’s Engaged Experts assist you with preparation and submitting a test report to the Zigbee alliance.
