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).

Hardware

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.
