 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

hi, anyone know how does it work when using 1 arduino uno board and 2 xbee series 1? in other words, transmitter is connected to the board while the receiver is connected to the components such as LEDs, buzzer etc. thus it will send data to receiver and activate buzzer or LED. i heard using software serial is possible. is it true?

For the Arduino to talk to the XBee, yes.

Proper configuration of the XBees is going to be critical to your success.

thanks cybernetician for the references  smiley hmm but the website normally state that it can only be use 1 microcontroller if use API mode. however, i am using Xbee series 1. i dont think series 1 is able to do it right?

thanks paulS, i am still not sure how to have proper configuration. for example, what kind of settings do i still need to set? bec i am using series 1 not series 2.
