How can I set the XBee Node Identifier remotely (not using XCTU)?


I am trying to set the Node Identifier field programmatically from an Arduino. I haven’t found any sort of AT command that let’s you set the NI, only read it. If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Thank you.

The NI command is both for setting and reading the value. If you issue just the ATNI, it will allow you to read the value but if add a value after the ATNI such as ATNIHello you will set the NI field to what you provided. In this case the world hello.

Thank you! I am able to change the coordinator name through the XCTU terminal with this. I just need to adapt it to an Arduino Router node now to run during the setup function.
