Hi everyone. I have a lot of interest about home automation. I have been searching and find the solution using Zigbee and Arduino. The main idea is to control the lights of the house, the devices that are connect to the electrical outlets (AC power plugs and sockets).
I was planning to change the switch of my house with this one On/Off dimming Switch (ILS-SE21J-Z) ( http://www.zigbee.org/DesktopModules/ZigbeeCompanyProducts/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=273&Ctrl=ViewProducts ).
The electrical outlets with the Safe Plug 2013 (http://www.zigbee.org/DesktopModules/ZigbeeCompanyProducts/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=311&Ctrl=ViewProducts)
According to what I have read (Not sure if it is correct) I need to make my Zigbee network with their ZigBee Coordinator, use the ZigBee Router just in case it is need. (This will depend of my house) and the ZigBee End Device which are the On/Off dimming Switch and the Safe Plug 2013.
My question is. With the arduino xBee Shield I could control all of this devices? It is going to be necessary to use the ZigBee Coordinator. My idea is to create an online app for controlling the lights and electrical outlets of my house.
Thanks for your time
