We are using a xbee temp/humidity/light sensor connected to a coordinator (no digi gateway). The dev wiki states to disable the IR setting.
-- from http://www.digi.com/wiki/developer/index.php/XBee_Sensors
The assumed operation is to place the XBee Sensor into sleep, then have it send the data unsolicited to the XBee node listed in the DH/DL settings.To enable sleeping operation longer than 1 minute: set IR to 0xFFFF, which effectively disables the 'sample rate' setting. set WH to 125 to allow the sensor hardware to stabilize for 125msec before the XBee reads the analog inputs (note: not all XBee modules support the WH parameter) set the SN/SP pair to enable sleeping for the desired time period. SP is the number of 10msec periods to sleep SN is the number of SP-periods to sleep for.
This article - Digital and analog sampling using XBee radios - from the knowledge base suggest different settings to get samples. We set the device per the dev wiki and get no samples. If we set the IR value we will get samples. So I must misunderstand what I have read and how this works. I was told that when the device wakes it will send a sample (irregardless of IR). This does not seem to be the case. If I want the device to wake every 15 mins and send a sample how do I configure the device?
thanks in advance..
