A ZigBee network has 16 channels available for use. The TEC Series Wireless Thermostat Controller system and ZFR1800 Series Wireless Field Bus system use only channels 15, 20, and 25. These channels were selected because they do not overlap with channels used on a Wi-Fi network. Figure 1 is a diagram from the ZFR1800 Series Wireless Field Bus System Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011295) illustrating that the ZigBee channels do not interfere with the Wi-Fi network.
