ZigBee Gateway Development Kit

Development kit for ZigBee gateways and Device Cloud

Device Cloud by Etherios
  • Jump-start application development with pre-packaged kit
  • Discover and configure ZigBee network devices
  • Read temperature and light values from the ZigBee network via Device Cloud™
  • Provide IP connectivity (Ethernet or cellular/WiMAX) to the ZigBee network with a ConnectPort X4 gateway
  • Google App Engine™ platform and supporting code provide a business application example utilizing sensor data

The Gateway Development Kit is designed to make it easy to setup a ZigBee network, upload a custom DIA application, and provide seamless connectivity to Device Cloud by Etherios for web services integration to standard business applications over the Internet. The kit contains:

  • ConnectPort® X4 ZigBee to Ethernet (or cellular/WiMAX) gateway
  • Digi XBee Smart Plug™ (non-US versions substitute XBee® Range Extender)
  • Battery-powered XBee temperature/light sensor
  • Digi ESP Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for DIA/Python development
  • Related cables, batteries and power supply

Kit users will explore three key aspects of Digi technology: ZigBee networking and gateway fundamentals, local customization on the gateway using DIA/Python software, and Web Services. The kit also provides an example of how a business application would utilize real-time sensor data via web services and Google Apps.

Device Cloud

Device Cloud is a feature of all Digi cellular gateways, routers, devices and components. Device Manager provides a robust suite of network management tools including authentication, configuration management, account management, asynchronous updates and alerts, group and individual software updating, network data storage and gateway programming. 

Device Cloud empowers IT, network operations and customer support organizations to conquer the challenges of managing the vast array of cellular equipment in their device networks. Network managers can remotely configure, upgrade, monitor and troubleshoot remote devices, and create applications that improve productivity, speed and efficiency.
