I would like to retrieve the RSSI values from my devices using Python, how can I do this?
The idea is to retrieve the RSSI values and send them to an external microcontroller which will light up different LEDs in a dashboard.
Thank you for your help.
It’s a bit clunky but you can use the digicli module and the ‘set xbee’ command.
set xbee addr=0000 DB
result: DB: “&” 38 0x26
Thanks for your answer.
My idea is to send the RSSI values to a microcontroller to control some external LEDs depending on the RSSI values. How can I connect the Digi device to a microcontroller for this purpose?
Digi WAN should have an RS-232 port. Why not use that? You could have a python app that gets the RSSI (set xbee addr=etc.) and then opens and sends that information out the serial port.
