Ember's Smart Energy Suite (SES) is a collection of embedded software, tools and silicon that simplifies the delivery of devices certified to the Zigbee Alliance's Smart Energy (SE) Profile.

The SE Profile defines the standard behavior of secure, easy-to-use, Home Area Network (HAN) devicescritical components of emerging advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployments.

Ember Resources Inc. has been working with AMI industry leaders within the Zigbee Alliance to accelerate delivery of SE Profile Certified products.

Twelve vendors, including Ember, have certified products based on Ember's SES. Ember has also partnered with Certicom, provider of the most secure public key scheme, to integrate the industry's leading security and authentication technology into the Ember SES.

Ember's SES includes:

  • A complete, fully certified Zigbee SE Profile reference application

  • Ember's AppBuilder tool for Zigbee SE certified device development

  • Ver 3.2 of the EmberZNet PRO networking stack, supporting the Zigbee PRO Feature Set

  • Certicom's Security Builder MCE (MCU edition) for Zigbee SE software

  • Ember's EM250 Zigbee system-on-chip and the EM260 Zigbee network coprocessor

    The Zigbee SE Profile enables wireless communication between the AMI network and HAN, linking homes with utilities. This allows homeowners and utility companies to collaborate on improving energy efficiency and managing peak demand while offering consumers a choice in interoperable devices.
