You're right, naperlou. And I misspelled Zigbee, as well. Time to re-visit copy editing class.

Charles, Thank you for the heads up.  This is truly one technology that's gaining momentum every year. This will be a very valuable learning experience for engineers of all "stripes" (even gearheads like me).  Again, thank you for the head's up.  I intend to enroll.

Chuck, you mention Zigbee in your article, and seem to contrast it with BluetoothLE.  These are basically two very different things.  While Zigbee is also concerend with low power and efficiency, it also sets up a mesh network that allows the sensors to work together in a group.  This is a bit different from what Bluetooth is doing.
