Good note on hte ZWave shipments - happy to hear it is up to 70M.

My estimate on ZigBee shipments is they are somewhare over 200M (mesh only) and growing 40-50% per year).  These are generally splity between smart metering and home automation (including lighting).  The shipments of RF4CE for remote controls is separate than this and I am not sure the size of those lifetime shipments.

To Rick - The Aria hotel in Vegas has ~85K zigbee devices doing room monitoring and control and that was installed by Control 4.

The biggest markets for Zigbee are smart meters and now, we believe, remote controls for some home entertainment systems (allowing the tuner box to be hidden and enabling one remote to control multiple tuners around the home). One supplier told us they are shipping 1 million zigbee ICs a week acoss these two applications.

@sranje I'd like to see the data too.

I recall Zigbee was going to revolutionize building automation years before we started talking about IoT. I once heard the MGM Grand in Vegas was supposed to be the world's biggest Zigbee installation but I could never get the vendor who worked on it to talk to me.

How many ZigBee devices have been shipped - either in 2016 or cumulatively?

I am hearing abour ZigBee for ten (10) years...

Interesting post, with one correction - Z-Wave has shipped 70 million devices into the market as of 2016: http://mysmahome.com/news/31242/z-wave-smart-home-device-adoption-grows-in-2016/
