Overview

The Adafruit XBee series 1 modules use the 802.15.4 protocol to communicate with each other in a point-to-point, multipoint or mesh network. The modules communicate to an embedded device or a computer through a serial connection. The XBee modules can be purchased from Adafruit here. We also used a plug in board in order to speed development which can be bought here. The plug-in board allows the user to plug the board into a breadboard and start communicating with other modules immediately.
