RCI Usage Non Digi Zigbee based Devices


Here is my query:
How to use RCI for CRUD operations on Non-Digi Zigbee based Devices?

Pointers to sample xmls or reference document is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Can you tell us more about what you’re trying to do? RCI is an xml communications mechanism you can use with a gateway either via the HTTP interface or iDigi. Are you trying to do something like RCI with some implementation specific commands to iDigi -> Gateway -> out XBee network -> non-digi Zigbee device (which may or may not send back a response)? If so, you’ll want to look into the rci module (http://www.digi.com/wiki/developer/index.php/Rci) as you’ll need to create some custom code to send it out to the non-digi zigbee device (once you get it associated with the gateway)


Thanks for the reply.
Couple of questions here:

  1. Communication to a nonDigi Zigbee Pro compatible device through Digi platform (Gateway, coordinator) - How simple is this configuration (plug and play?), this is my understanding: I have to send out an RCI command to the gateway through my application, gateway will inturn communicate with the NonDigi Zigbee device on zigbee protocol and this would mean Digi gateway is zigbee pro compatible-please correct me if I am wrong.

Basically this is what I am trying to do:

Browser <–> Digi Gateway <–> “Non-Digi” Zigbee based devices (nodes).

In order to achieve the above functionality what is the level of customization involved? -SCI/RCI etc. What if this Non Digi zigbee based device do not communicate using RCI but communicates using plain Zigbee based commands?
