XB24-AWI-001 module star network question

Hi there As a beginned I have few questions. I am planning to control 10 leds with a one tx module I am planning to buy XB24-AWI-001 model. Is it feasable to connect 10 end devices to 1 coordinator? And also I am using arduino and is it possible to run the system without using any xbee library so can they work with serial.Read()/Write commands as soon as I connect them with serial pins? Appreciate for any help.

Sure, there is no limitation to the number of end devices that was written into the firmware for the XBee 802.15.4 modules. The only limit that i am aware of is the total number of 16 bit addresses it can assign out.
