Smart light bulbs, motion sensors, temperature sensors and even door locks

The one thing these devices would appear to have in common is a need for power. And you don't really want your heating, alarm or door locks to fail when batteries run out. I can just about believe that a Zigbee temperature sensor could eke out its battery for a year or two, but the rest are going to need real juice. So aren't all practical deployments of these things going to have wired connections anyway?
