Unable to use of Xbee Wifi Module . Unable to understand?

Hi,

https://www.sparkfun.com/pages/xbee_guide

Well i am looking for some thing like this. What i have understood from the google.

  1. xbee provides Ethernet so that any mobile device connects it it and it turn send data to Arduino ?? Right

OR

xbee is normal Wifi connect module which connects to local LAN through router.

2 .PLUS CAN I DO PROXIMITY SENSING?

This is what i wanted , when i connect to xbee and checks the proximity, if i come to close i can send a trigger and my arduino does some thing.

Please provide me clarity on what it can do? i am confused. I dont want to use BT for proximity .

XBee is wireless; that is all it is.

Just because something is wireless does not mean it is Wifi as we understand Wifi to be.

ieee488: XBee is wireless; that is all it is.

Just because something is wireless does not mean it is Wifi as we understand Wifi to be.

However, there are some modules that use the XBee pin spacing and order that do provide WiFi capabilities.

OP: You need to post a link to the XBee(s) you are actually using (or planning to use).

2 .PLUS CAN I DO PROXIMITY SENSING?

Most people can. The Arduino can, too, with the appropriate external sensor connected.
