I'll be working on multi level temperature monitoring via xbee. It will be my first time working on mesh connection.
I did peer-to-peer connection following this youtube tutorial which can pass analog and digital value without the slave having an extra controller. It was really good.
Anyway, I want to test the xbee power on a larger scale. I currently have 4 xbees--XBee PRO S2B-- connected to 3 arduino unos and 1 arduino mega because I'm out of unos. I'll be connecting ds18b20 for temperature monitoring.
I'm using XBee with Product family XBP24BZ7
I'm using this shield http://www.elecrow.com/wiki/index.php?title=XBee_shield
The first problem I have is what should be the xbee configuration?
Right now all I changed is:
Xbee1 Zigbee Coordinator API (21A7) PAN ID 1234 AP 2 Xbee2 Zigbee Router API (23A7) PAN ID 1234 AP 2 Xbee3 Zigbee Router API (23A7) PAN ID 1234 AP 2 Xbee4 Zigbee Router API (23A7) PAN ID 1234 AP 2 Sorry I can't upload the profile. I don't know how.
This should be the setup:
xbees2,3&4 will send temp reading every 30 seconds to xbee1. Should I configure the 2 devices in room 3&4 as end devices or is it ok that xbees 2,3&4 are routers?
