Why does the modlet use Zigbee? Why not WiFi?

The basic modlet utilizes the Zigbee wireless protocol and has advantages over WiFi, since very secure networks can be built without requiring you to type in information such as "SSID" and "Network names" during set up. It is more robust in building large networks over longer distances while using less energy than WiFi. ThinkEco also offers a WiFi smartAC kit which is ideal for smaller networks as it does not require an additional gateway.

You know if you have a WiFi modlet if a WiFi Mac address displays on the back of the modlet.
