Recently I reviewed the latest XBee ZB RF module spec (90000976_L) and zigbee aliance’s pulic documents such as ZigBee specification 2007, ZigBee cluster library (r04) and ZigBee Home Automation Profile.
I want to find if it is possible to implement a server and client applications to simulate ZigBee HA devices on PC with a USB XBee stick. XBee spec says it could support ZCL/ZDO/Public profile commands with Explicit TX/RX api frame. I believe it but the problem is some management features seem not handled in none of these api frames.
I searched some old threads and I have all the questions they metionded. But there are no reply really answered them well.
Here are the question threads.
As far as I can see, there is no APS management interface support in XB ZB firmware, so APS group and binding functions may be impossible to implement via its UART-API frames. Group and Binding are very important features for most of automation applications.
I hope I am wrong about this conclusion and then I can simulate a public profile device with XBee ZB radios.
If someone knows how to get that implemented or has clear answer to my questions, please tell me here. Thank you.
