Early Access: Going Wireless with XBee

Don't want to break your walls to wire cables? Newsflash: you don't have to anymore.

Subversion contains the driver for XBee ZB based switches (sensor drivers are underway). As usual, if you can read source code and configure a Spring IoC container, you will have no trouble utilizing it. Configuration of an XBee device is just like the configuration of a 1-Wire device (start with the device factory... and so on and so forth).


As usual, wide range of devices is supported, but the specific hardware drivers were written on is:
The device connected to the computer must have the Coordinator API firmware with AP=2. Relay shield is equipped with Router AT firmware XBee, but most probably End Device AT firmware will work, too - as well as API firmware of both kinds.

No custom firmware is required on XBee devices.

More to come.
