» 868 10a: Node search 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.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
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)
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
