Newbie here. I have two nodes connected to a Gateway. One has a temp sensor. The other has a relay. From the gateway, I would like to read the temp stream from the one node and based on the temperature, engage the relay on the other node.
Question 1) Does this seem like a reasonable thing to do just using the gateway and not needing an Arduino?
Question 2) If so, how does one access the stream from the XBee node with Python. I’ve been trying to find out what the library/commands are and I’m stuck. Can you point me to reference material on this?
Any words of wisdom to get me out of my rut will be very much appreciated.
(BTW, I tried reading the stream by opening it like a file such as
f = open(“00000000-00000000-004B9DEF-FF818355/xbee.analog/[00:13:A2:34:40:E7 :33:13]!/AD2”, “r”)
and this gave me an error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘00000000-00000000-004B9DEF-FF818355/xbee.analog/[00:13:A2:34:40:E7 :33:13]!/AD2’)
Thank you in advance!
