Hi guys, It's first time I try to work with XBee devices so I'm totally newbie.
I need to make a point to multi-point network:
- 5-6 remote sensors
- 1 server
Every device will be powered by Raspberry-Pi where I'll connect XBee module, preferred serial interface instead USB.
Every remote device will send data to central server, I'working in not direct-seight area, so I was thinking to 868 MHz, but actually my supplier can provide me only 2,4GHz modules I could use for tests.
I would like to be able to set some modules as repeaters (modules should be within less than 1km far from central server, but I can still have troubles, so I plan to place repeaters).
Central server has got internet connection to display data on webpage.
Now, I supposed to use XBee® 868LP as final module, but only XB24 is available for tests.
1) Can I set both modules for repeater function?
2) Once I send data to server through serial port (maybe in Python), can I get acknowledge central server has received data?
