Communication / 868:

» 868 08b: Complete example RX

This is a complete example for XBee 868. This example shows how to receive a packet. When the source address is the expected one, an answer is sent back to the sending Waspmote

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote PRO
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x XBee-868

Notes

* This example belongs to a two-code example. This is the receiving part.
* All XBee modules must be configured with the same network parameters (PANID and encryption mode)

Code
