In this example, we’ll walk you through the steps for setting up the Digi XBee Internet Gateway and Digi Remote Manager (DRM) to control a lamp over the internet! Of course, you don’t have to use a lamp for this; you can use XIG and Digi Remote Manager to control many kinds of devices and even read wireless sensors.
When you want to turn the lamp on or off, you’ll click a bookmark on your bookmarks bar that will connect you to your own PHP-enabled web server. The server will send an XML-formatted request to Digi Remote Manager, which will pass the request along to the Digi XBee Internet Gateway. The XIG will wirelessly set the command on the Digi XBee to set a pin high, which is connected to a PowerSwitch Tail. The lamp connected to the PowerSwitch Tail will light up when the Digi XBee’s pin is high.
