Developing a cloud-connected product requires expertise in both hardware and software development, and merging these worlds together to create a new product can be costly and time-consuming. The XBee Wi-Fi embedded module brings the popular XBee platform to the Digi Device Cloud, allowing developers to build cloud-connected Wi-Fi products quicker and more efficiently than ever before.
Exciting features on the XBee Wi-Fi module include:
- Native Device Cloud support: Module can automatically connect to Device Cloud (see XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit for more details about this feature)
- Simple provisioning tools: SoftAP, WPS, and a local WebUI are all available to make provisioning the module a breeze
- Flexible design options: Available in Through-Hole and Surface-Mount footprints
The XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit includes all of the hardware and software tools needed to build a cloud-connected Wi-Fi prototype in under an hour. The Internet of Things has never been so simple!
Build cloud-connected Wi-Fi prototypes in under an hour
The XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit, which fully integrates into Device Cloud, is a simple way for anyone with an interest in M2M and the Internet of Things to quickly build a hardware prototype and integrate it into an internet-based application. Each kit contains an XBee Wi-Fi module; a development board with a variety of sensors and actuators; a variety of loose electronic prototyping parts for making circuits of your own; and cables, accessories and everything needed to connect to the web. Also included is an open-source web application with configurable widgets that can be used to monitor and control your cloud-connected hardware.
Popular XBee Through-Hole and Surface-Mount footprints
The XBee footprint adds flexibility and reduces risk to a product design. With a wide variety of different wireless technologies available in this footprint, adding an XBee socket enables the drop-in addition of anything from Wi-Fi to ZigBee, 2.4 GHz to 900 MHz.
Ideal for Industrial Applications that require fast time to market
Developing a cloud-connected product requires expertise in both RF hardware and software development, and merging these worlds together to create a new product can be costly and time-consuming, especially for companies with little knowledge or background in RF engineering. The XBee Wi-Fi module helps overcome these obstacles; Digi has already done the work to create a fully certified module that can be integrated into a product design with minimal effort or cost. Take advantage of the XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit to help accelerate initial product design.
Easily connect to a smartphone or tablet for configuration or data transfer
Using SoftAP Provisioning mode, any smartphone, tablet or other Wi-Fi enabled device with a web browser has the ability to connect to the XBee Wi-Fi and configure the module to connect to an existing Wi-Fi network.
The module can also be configured as SoftAP with data pass through. This allows the transmission and collection of data from the module to any Wi-Fi enabled device.
