LEEDARSON’S IoT Innovation Journey with Zigbee Alliance
Founded in 2000, and headquartered in Xiamen, China, LEEDARSON is a high-tech corporation that specializes in the R&D and production of Internet of Things (IoT) products consisting of sensors, controls, cameras and smart household appliances, along with connected and non-connected LED bulbs, fixtures, luminaires and light sources.
LEEDARSON is committed to bringing IoT products into homes and buildings to create a smarter and more connected world. To meet this goal, it was vital to choose a dynamic, mature network on which to build successful products. After extensive market research, LEEDARSON selected Zigbee due to its stable self-healing mesh technology, application layer with mature interoperability, low-power requirements, market-proven security, open standard and extensive market presence.
In 2016, LEEDARSON joined the Zigbee Alliance to fully utilize Zigbee technology to build and certify IoT products for US and European markets. Following that, in 2017, LEEDARSON extended its commitment to the Alliance and Zigbee technology by joining the Board of Directors to help drive innovation for IoT.
"As a mature and stable technology, Zigbee is an excellent platform for either creating a single ecosystem or working with other Zigbee ecosystems. As a global leader in the IoT and lighting industry, LEEDARSON will continue to build upon our success with Zigbee products and solutions for home and commercial buildings.” - John E. Osborne II, President, LEEDARSON North America and Chairman Emeritus of the Board for the Zigbee Alliance.
Today LEEDARSON carries 300+ certified Zigbee products and continues to leverage Zigbee to develop new and exciting product lines. The flexibility and power of Zigbee allows LEEDARSON to offer a total Zigbee-based solution for commercial buildings as well as residential applications. While smart dimmers and smart plugs are still among the most popular products by volume, LEEDARSON is working to make IoT products approachable for all consumers.
To make it easy for consumers to get started, LEEDARSON provides kits with a variety of devices and configurations – from starter to more advanced kits, tailored to the consumer’s needs and experience level for Home Automation, Smart Lighting, Energy Management, and Security.
Having a secure and comfortable home environment are still the two leading drivers for consumers to adopt IoT. With the global pandemic of the past year that changed not only the way our individual lives, but the entire world functions, the trends for cameras and various sensors have only solidified. Over the past year, LEEDARSON has been working several new products for more convenient and safe living:
- Door Window Sensor (Bypass +Vibration) – including high value features like alarm disable, vibration pattern recognition and alerts and magnetic height adjustment for flexible installation.
- Smoke & CO2 Sensor – compliant with latest certification in North America, running on a 10-year battery and using photoelectric optical sensing to detect smoke or carbon monoxide presence.
- TRV – smart heat valve which includes geofencing temperature control, programmable convenience modes, control from your phone and integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
As a world-leading IoT solution provider, LEEDARSON partners with businesses to help them design, manufacture, test, certify, package and deliver extraordinary IoT devices and end-to-end oT services to empower every aspect of the home and commercial building.
To support the complete product development lifecycle, LEEDARSON owns two smart production bases that cover a total area of 430,000m² and integrate a self-built, vertical supply chain covering key components, final assembly and packaging worldwide. Together, the two bases contain hundreds of automated production lines that produce tens of millions of units per month.
With the use of Zigbee, today LEEDARSON is known as a high-quality, efficient one-stop-shop IoT product manufacturing powerhouse and IoT solution provider focused on developing proven, reliable and interoperable smart products for creating value and making people’s lives better.
