XBee® ZigBee® Gateway

Programmable XBee to IP Gateway with Scalable Device Management

  • Secure WAN connectivity for large networks of XBee-based devices
  • Open Source Python environment for custom application development on the gateway
  • Flexible Cellular, Wi-Fi and Ethernet WAN connectivity options
  • Integration with Digi Device Cloud enables remote configuration and management of complete XBee network
How to Buy
The XBee Gateway provides a low-cost, programmable solution to connect networks of XBee-enabled devices to IP networks. With a simple, open-source Python development environment, this gateway enables custom applications to run locally while interfacing across existing Ethernet/Wi-Fi/cellular networks for WAN connectivity to cloud-based software applications.

XBee Gateway products can be managed remotely via Device Cloud. Device Cloud allows users to remotely manage thousands of deployed devices, supporting features like remote firmware upgrades and event alarms.

The XBee Gateway can be tested and developed using the XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit, which fully integrates the XBee Gateway, XBee Module, Device Cloud and a sample web application into a cohesive internet-connected solution. This kit is a powerful tool that enables developers to create internet-connected prototypes in 30 minutes or less.
We needed an easy and secure way to get data from the ground to the cloud and into our application. Digi International offered everything.
