Get Xbee SE module

+1 vote

For create a smart energy thermostat, through the document I found, it should have a XBee SE RF module. But I haven't found it in the "Products", where could I get it and does X-CTU could do the configuration?

Thank you!

It appears you will need to convert your XBee modules to SE capable:

You can download the Smart Energy Conversion Kit here:


Follow the instructions in the Conversion Kit to update your XBee firmware to the Smart Energy variant.

yes, I use X-CTU for configurations.
for coordinator: ID=0 SC=3FFF SD=7 NJ=254 NT=255  EO=8 NK=0 KY=1 SN=4 SP=50;
for the module end device: ID=0 SC=3FFF SD=7 NJ=FE EO=8 SN=4 SP=50;
when I use API to register the module to the coordinator, the response of status is 02 (Device joined to network), but after 2s, it shows 03 (Device disassociated)
thank you so much!!!
XCTU does not do the required Server based authentication that needs to be done for a Smart Energy product to associate.  

I would suggest you start by reading http://www.digi.com/standards/smart-energy/assets/appnote_xbee_se_devices.pdf
Then I would suggest using the In Premieres display  at http://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=4253&type=utilities.
Hi, me again...sorry for disturbe, but I got a new problem. I'm not sure what I had done that make the SE gateway is inactive also, and the page of Smart Energy Developer Tools--Debug--command cant refresh, it shows Request timeout. And in the Device Cloud, smart energy part it shows:  
Status: Inactive
Node Type (Role): Unknown
Manufacturer ID: 0xFFFFFFFF
Gateway Device ID: 00409DFF-FF60CCDE

And the log file:

I tried update firmware and SE_framwork, doesn't work.

can you give me some advice? Thank you!
