The XBee Internet Gateway 1.4 allows you to monitor and control any device from anywhere using the Internet and the iDigi Cloud. The current version runs on Digi’s ConnectPort line of gateways and is intended for easy prototyping of sensing and control solutions. ConnectPorts are small devices that attach local networks of XBee radios to the Internet using Ethernet, WiFi, cellular data radios, even global satellites.
This latest version of The XBee Internet Gateway has some outstanding new capabilities that you can see here.
Here’s a helpful video that Jordan Husney put together to get you started. In the video, he explains how to send “AT” formatted configuration commands that read sensors attached to remote XBee radios and remotely trigger switches, lights, motors or other actuators. He uses the iDigi Device Cloud environment (free for developers) to send and receive information. These commands can also be sent directly from programs you write yourself:
