Zigbee at Home

I want to use and run many small battery sensors across the home. Wifi would have worked, but battery-powered sensors make them portable and usable. Also, I would like to keep small sensors out of my wifi network for security reasons. Zigbee is the ideal candidate for this.

How to Create and Issue Open Badges

Badges are ubiquitous on the web. Any website that has some social component has badges. Audible gives you badges based on your listening. StackOverFlow gives you badges based on your participation etc. The problem with these badges is that they are not portable and not verifiable. For example, if you are on a site where you want to show or prove the badge that you have acquired on StackOverFlow, then it’s not possible. OpenBadge solves this.
