Xig Soft System Diagram

XBee Internet Gateway Released for Macintosh, Windows and Linux! « Rob Faludi.

Connecting your XBee to the Internet just got simple. The new XBee Internet Gateway v1.5 runs directly on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers! All you need is a single XBee with USB adaptor to put entire XBee networks online. With the XIG, you can turn any XBee into an Internet sensor module, create web-controlled motors , online indicator lights, and stream online data to and from any Arduino. Both 802.15.4 (Series 1) and ZigBee (Series 2) XBees are supported. You could create giant sensor networks, analyze and control distant equipment, scrape gossip from Facebook or simply flip switches in your own home! Download heredocumentation here.

This will help you make your own Tweet-a-watt!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. So, since this runs on Python, will it run on something like mightyohm’s hacked Asus WL-520GU router, no computer required?

  2. It might work. I know that it’s being tried on BeageBone right now. But of course you can use the Digi ConnectPort X2, X4, X5 or X8 as well, since that’s what it was originally designed for!
