I’m looking for some advice from people with XBee experience.
I’m planning to replace my OneWire sensor network (atm only temp and hum) with wireless XBee sensors. Each sensor would consist of 1 analog temp/hum sensor, 1 analog light sensor, 1 optional motion PIR sensor and optionally 1 open/close contact sensor (to check open windows with a hall-effect switch). I want to accomplish this with no MCU involved on the sensor nodes. I know this is perfectly possible with XBee modules.
However, I’m in doubt whether I should be looking at Series 1 or Series 2 modules. I want to start with 3 XBee modules, 1 connected to the Cobra, and 2 in the “wild” (located in house at various places). Afterwards, this could increase to about 20-30.
Ultimately they should be battery powered, so very low power consumption is desired.
Any advice you guys might have for me?
