I need to create a XBee based network with a coordinator plugged to an arduino and 4 standalone remote buttons that need to work with a 3,3v battery.
Each time a button is pressed, the associated XBee need to send a signal to the coordinator. The coordinator will be linked to 4 digital pins of the arduino.
I work with XBees S1.
I managed to create a working prototype but my 4 remotes went down after a few minutes I think because the XBee sent to many useless data.
I read a lot of things about sleep modes but I didn't found the perfect solution. What I think to be the perfect solution would be the following one :
- The Xbee sleeps
- I push the button
- The Xbee wakes up because he received a signal (and not the contrary)
- I relase the button
- The Xbee sleeps again now or after a few second (I need to manage double push and long push too...)
I'm ok to add a on/off button on the remotes but they need to stay alive for at least 8 hours when they are on.
Could you help me to find the correct configuration with the XCTU software ?
Thanks a lot !
