XBee Internet Gateway 1.3: I/O & Push

XBee Internet Gateway 1.3: I/O & Push @ Rob Faludi’s site.

The latest version of the XBee Interent Gateway is available today. XIG 1.3.0 includes several groundbreaking features. First there’s a new I/O Sample mode. Starting today, an XBee radio can squirt sensor information directly into the cloud  with no external microcontroller or special configuration needed. There’s also a push feature that feeds serial information down to a remote XBee from the cloud. Again, no special configuration is needed. The XIG takes care of all the complicated stuff!

Looks cool!

  1. In my experience, if someone refuses to tell you up front what they charge for a product, it is extravagantly overpriced. You have to click through five pages on this piece of hardware, links promising “Buy online”, etc., until you find that the price is listed as “contact us”. It does appear that someone here is ashamed to reveal the truth! They will get me looking further into it when they exhibit the simple honesty to tell me up front how much money they want for it!

  2. Cool, but LadyAda already has come up with a cheaper solution! http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2009/04/04/hacking-the-asus-router-for-the-tweet-a-watt/
    While the above link is for a specific application, there is no reason the same gateway couldn’t be running on the hacked router.
