This is Ashish from India. I am exploring IOT and as a part of this, I have purchased two Xbee ZB S2 modules and one standard HA device. I want ot develop a proto system for Home automation.
Initially, I have established communication between two Xbee ZB S2 modules (One as coordinator and another as device) and it worked. I have played with it through X-CTU software provided by Digi.
Now, I want to establish a test communication between XBee ZB S2 as coordinator and standard HA device but some how, I as not able to discover HA device through Xbee coordinator. I have tried setting ZS = 2 and entering HA trust centre key with encryption = ON but still there is no progress.
I have read your problem and it looks like I have very similar issue. Did you get any clue to move ahead in this? Kindly share your inputs.
I have contacted Digi Tech person through Digi forum. He suggested to try with ZS = 2 and with proper trust center key and if it does not work, go with SMT Module.
I have tried with Xbee ZB S2, setting ZS = 2 , Enabled Encryption and set Trust centre key = “” , but still it is not able to discover standard HA device (Osram-Sylvania ON/OFF LED in my case)
I have one more module from Digi - Xbee Zb S1. I have tried with that too but no progress. As you suggested that Xbee SMT module has HA supported in it. So even if I go for it, will I be able to configure it as full HA supported coordinator OR it has just few of the HA functions only?
Hi, unfortunately the project got shelfed and I am unable to provide you with an answer. However, I was working on a Phillips lamp which I did not have the trust center code for. I suspected that that wss the problem. Maybe you could try the suggestion of using the SMT module.
Also, I believe the XBee S1 does not support the Zigbee protocol. And the S1 and S2 will not talk to each other (if I’m not wrong it’s because the s2 has an additional layer).
All the best in your project, sorry that I can’t provide any help!
