Uartsbee V5 programming

I'm trying to connect and configure UartSBee v 5.0 to Arduino. My goal is to build a rain sensor using a tipping bucket method. So, every tip of the bucket represents 0.2 mm of rain which will be counted by the Arduino and the data will be sent to UartSBee v 5.0 receiver which will subsequently be sent to the transmitter connected to a computer However I'm confused about how exactly to configure Uartsbee V5.

Are the any references or tutorials around regarding how to start?

Any help is appreciated

However I'm confused about how exactly to configure Uartsbee V5.

So, you decided to not even post a link to the device. Not a good start.

This is the device, I thought the name would have been enough.
Any help is highly appreciated

That piece of hardware provides a way to connect an XBee to the Arduino using the FTDI method [u]or[/u] to a PC using a USB cable.

Which XBee is connected to the shield? Which role is the shield to play?
