i am using xbee 865/868 module in mesh network for my project. We have also noticed Xbee modules hanging some times. Once the module hangs, hard reset is required to bring up the module again. What could be the cause of this hanging? We checked our controller and it is working fine without any problem,
kindly please provide solution for my problem

Could it be that you are reaching the radios transmit duty cycle limit? The pro module can only be transmitting 11% of the time it is powered on including all re-transmissions or multi-transmits.

Are you trying to stream data with it?
yes were trying stream data. because my application is to control the lights and fans in the home
Controlling a light or fan is not something you should be Streaming data to control.  Streaming data would be for sending large files or large amounts of data.

Light control and Temp control should be simple On off commands sent infrequently.
we are sending the 16 bit address code. the seq is controller name, relay id and on/off xxx control
By 16 bit address code, do you mean that you are not using the radios 64 bit addressing function and just using the 16 bit network address?
