Below I have a diagram showing a setup that I would like to achieve as a segway into bigger projects. I can successfully connect 2 XBees: Coordinator (connected to PC) and an End Device (connected to an Arduino). However, I would like to work on 3+ XBees without using any Arduinos.
I have several XBee S1’s laying around, buttons and LEDs. I am good with C#, so I would like to attempt building the above network, where I am able to control (on/off) the LED of all 3 XBees independently by a click of a button. At the same time, I would like to know/show which XBee (of the 3) had its button pressed.
My issue is not programming, but rather understanding the feasibility of using XBee S1’s in an I/O network.
Can my setup be done? Or, do I have to purchase DigiMesh XBees?
It is unclear to me how do I communicated to a specific XBee and tell it to set HIGH on DIO-0 to turn on its LED or low to turn it off?
Any example would be very appreciated.
