I have an arduino I’m going to be running out in a field collecting soil data data which is fairly far away from my house. I purchased the Xbee Pro Series 1 to play with, but my goal is to get that data up on my server in “The Cloud.” I am thinking the way to do this is to have the Xbee Pro gather the data from the arduino and send it to, I guess, the Xbee Wifi Module at my house which I can connect to my router. So I guess I have two questions:
- Can the Xbee Pro Series 1 connect to the Xbee Wifi Module?
- Does the Wifi module have a microcontroller I can program with AT commands or something to make HTTP POST requests to my server from data it has received from the Xbee Pro Series 1? I have gotten this working with the ESP8211 wifi chip, but it doesn’t have the 700 foot range I need.
