Is XBee programmable?

Is XBee programmable?

A Programmable XBee is an XBee module that has an additional HCS08 FreeScale 8 bit microprocessor on board placed between the radios pins or header, and the RF processor. A standard part number begins with XB or XBP indicating if it is an XBee module or an XBee PRO.

What is the difference between Zigbee and XBee?

XBee is a family of radio modules and is a registered trademark of Digi International. Zigbee is a wireless communications protocol and a registered trademark of the Zigbee Alliance. Many people confuse these two names because both are involved in radio networking and have “Bee” in their branding.

Does XBee use Zigbee?

These modules use the IEEE 802.15. 4 networking protocol for fast point-to-multipoint or peer-to-peer networking. They are designed for high-throughput applications requiring low latency and predictable communication timing. “ So basically XBee is Digi’s own Zigbee based protocol.

Is XBee a microcontroller?

The XBee and XBee Pro have UART interface and can be connected directly from microcontroller to pins of RF Module (XBee/XBee Pro). Using UART interface, we can use this wireless devices to communicate between microcontroller to microcontroller (two PICs) or between PC to microcontroller.

What is XBee Arduino?

Overview. The Xbee shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It is based on the Xbee module from MaxStream. The module can communicate up to 100 feet indoors or 300 feet outdoors (with line-of-sight). The shields breaks out each of the Xbee’s pins to a through-hole solder pad.

What’s better ZigBee or Z Wave?

Zigbee is faster, hands down, when it uses its 2.4 GHz frequency. The problem is, you sacrifice power consumption for speed. So, you may need to change the batteries in your smart devices more often. Z-Wave is less than half as fast, but at least you can wait a little longer to change out the batteries.

What’s better Zigbee or Z Wave?

How do I use XBee with Arduino?

Just hook up the XBee module to the Explorer board and plug it with the laptop using USB cable. If you don’t have any converter or explorer board, then an Arduino board can be used as a USB to serial device which can easily communicate with the XBee and laptop.

What is Zigbee technology?

Zigbee is a wireless technology developed as an open global standard to address the unique needs of low-cost, low-power wireless IoT networks. The Zigbee standard operates on the IEEE 802.15. The protocol allows devices to communicate in a variety of network topologies and can have battery life lasting several years.

What frequency is Z-Wave?

908.42 MHz
Z-Wave is a wireless radio frequency technology which operates at 908.42 MHz (in the US & Canada) that lets smart devices talk to and connect with one another.
