» ZB 11a: Search node TX

This program shows how to search for a specific node inside the XBee's network. Once the node has been found a packet is sent to this node. Keep in mind that there must be a node with the specific Node ID(NI parameter) so as to be scanned

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote PRO
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x XBee-ZigBee module

Notes

* The coordinator must be turned on
* Keep in mind that there must be a node with the specific Node ID (NI parameter) so as to be scanned
