Zigbee is a mesh network protocol.
Xbee is Digi’s implementation of Zigbee with an easy-to-use interface, and long range capability.
Zwave is a proprietary mesh network designed for home automation. Zwave and Zigbee are similar, but incompatible.
IMHO, Zwave has far greater penetration into home automation, but Zigbee is king in Industrial settings.
