hello
i'm currently working on a project in which I use antennas such as XBee 2  Wire Antenna - Series 2 (ZigBee Mesh).
the end device have to sleep all the night
How can I configure my antenna to go sleep mode using software in API mode (without using XCTU)?
How am I supposed to wake up the antenna?

It's not the antenna that needs to sleep. It's the microcontroller on the XBee module.

Why are you opposed to using X-CTU?

You really need to work this out BEFORE you go to sleep.

Under what circumstances should the XBee wake up?

How will it know what time it is?

If you have an RTC attached that can generate an interrupt at 8 AM, that could wake the XBee up.
