Configure Reporting

0 votes
I am trying to configure my Xbee sensor to send report at fixed interval time.
The method that I got from my sensor manufacturer:

Configure reporting (request)
Device battery report(configure reporting request)
Head: FA
Length: 10
Basic Command:3D
Target device short address: 9A A0
Target device ep:01
Cluster:01 00(Power Cluster)
Cmmand ID:06
Direction: 00
Attribute ID:21 00(power) Attr Data Type:20
Mini report time(s):05 00 (5s)
Max report time(s):3C 00 (60s)
Change record:00
Test Command: FA 10 3D 9A A0 01 01 00 06 00 21 00 20 05 00 3C 00 00 04 F5

Bind (request)
bind Basic Command:45
Target device short address:9A A0(This item is missing from the protocol document)
Original device MAC address:C1 C8 E7 0B 00 6F 0D 00
Original device ep:01
Cluster of Bind device:01 00(power)
Target device address type:03
Target device MAC address:2C B3 E7 0B 00 6F 0D 00
Target device ep:01
End code:F5
Test Command:FA 18 45 9A A0 C1 C8 E7 0B 00 6F 0D 00 01 01 00 03 2C B3 E7 0B 00 6F 0D 00 01 AE F5

I can understand that the first one mean to send [command ID 0x06 - configure reporting] with the attribute packet [Direction,AttributeID,DataType,MinReportingInterval,MaxReportingInterval].
So I sent [0x10, 0x00, 0x06, 0x00, 0x21, 0x00, 0x20, 0x05, 0x00, 0x3C, 0x00, 0x00]
which means [frameControl,sequenceNumber,cmdID,(followed by the above attribute packet)]

then I would receive [0x18, 0x00, 0x07, 0x00] from the sensor which is the configure reporting response with a success status. But I don't know how to bind the sensor to the MAC address after that. Any help on this please?

Take a read of https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/DigiDocs/90002002/default.htm#Reference/r_zb_binding.htm?Highlight=binding

I have read the documentation, it doesn't seem to be related. The payload format given are different.
On that particular XBee, that is how you do a binding request.  Keep in mind that a binding request may include software level items that the product manual is not going to cover.
Can you advice me on how to send a binding request of the given format please? I am using an api library that sends in a fixed format which is [frameControl,sequenceNumber,cmdID,(followed by the above attribute packet)].
As I am not given with a command ID, I do not know how to proceed with the binding request.
You need to use API mode with Explicit frames. You also need to read over the next section of the manual that covers Group tables as that is part of binding.
I have tested with the following, what I have sent to the sensor:
64-bit destination address           0013a2004105dc3f
16-bit destination address           0000
64-bit destination address           005043c9a3362145
16-bit destination address           8d35
[Data sent to sensor]
7E002C1101005043c9a33621458d350000002000000000[ZDO Payload]76
Start Delimiter                                   7E
Length                                                  002C
Frame Type                                        11
Frame ID                                              01
64-bit destination address           005043c9a3362145
16-bit destination address           8d35
Source end point                             00
Destination end point                    00
Cluster ID                                            0020       (End Device Bind Req)
Profile ID                                             0000
Broadcast radius                               00
Options                                                00
ZDO Payload                                      00358d452136a3c9435000010100033fdc054100a2130001
Checksum                                           76
[ZDO Payload]
Transaction sequence                    00
Target device short address        358d
Original device MAC address      452136a3c9435000
Original device ep                            01
Cluster of Bind device                    0100       (Power)
Target device address type         03
Target device MAC address         3fdc054100a21300
Target device ep          01

I have also tested with the standard format from cluster 0020 (End Device Bind) and 0021 (Bind req), it does not seem to work. Able to tell me if I made an error please?
ZDO commands are generally done in Little Indian Format.
