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!



  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!
