Small mesh network timing question

I am building pyro firing system that uses XBee Pro Module - ZB Series 2 modules. A very desirable feature of a pyro system is sync’d timing amongst all remote units so you can have a whole row of effects fire all at the same time. If there are 10 Xbees meshed together and I want to have all of them fire perceptively “at the same time” is it practical to send out fire commands one by one to each Xbee? Or should I preload a show script into each unit and then broadcast to the entire network an ‘execute script’ command?


it would be far better for the 2nd option. You see the latency on a Mesh network can vary and timing is NOT a guaranteed.
