Is the xbee grove development board not compatible with an arduino and other regular sensors such as PIR and LDR ?

Hi, We purchased a digi Xbee Zigbee mesh kit, for a proposed street light project. The modules are fine and working well, except that I am not able to configure / make it work with an arduino. Is the xbee grove development board not compatible with an arduino?. The second issue is when I tried connecting the grove xbee board ( without arduino) with an ldr sensor or pir sensor, I see that I am not able to see the sensor data being displayed on the xctu. I made the xbee module with sensor as router and the other xbee connected to PC as coordinator. I tried to troubleshoot by referring to the xbee development guide, but I see that it is not responsive. Kindly suggest. Thank you

No, it is not an Arduino board.

What kind of interface do these LDR or PIR sensors require?

Greetings
I have managed to make the arduino uno board work with the XBEE, if you still need information about it, please let me know

(excuse the translation)

Atte.

Are you able to receive real-time data on the end device from an XBee coordinator unit through an IDE code?
I can achieve it only if I send the data through the serial monitor. But I can't transfer the information printed on the Serial Monitor in real-time to the end unit. Is there a need for an additional Arduino in a direct UART connection to Arduino on the end device for this purpose?
