Zigbee 3.0.1 is now the new standard for product certifications. Read our guide to learn about the update and understand what this means to you as a manufacturer.

 

What is the Zigbee 3.0.1 update? 

The Zigbee 3.0 profile has previously been tested using ZTT (Zigbee Test Tool). However, it has recently completed a sunset period and was replaced in April 2022 with the latest Zigbee version 3.0.1 which now is the standard to which new devices must be certified. This has also replaced ZTT with ZUTH (Zigbee Unified Test Harness) as the primary apparatus to facilitate certification. 

 

What does the Zigbee update mean for manufacturers? 

If you are a manufacturer who is a member of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), you can get access to a ZUTH license free of charge. You will benefit from performing your own pre-certification testing before submitting your product for testing.

It's important that pre-certification tests are carried out to ensure a reduction in certification delays and assist with development support. Manufacturers will be able to identify possible irregularities early and use the tool to pre-verify compliance. In addition, the tool Element use for the formal assessment enables you to have a higher level of confidence in the product you are submitting.
