How to Use Xbee as an RF Trigger in Your Own Smart System

There are plenty of ways you can use this as part of a wider smart system. Add transponders and actuators to either side of the send/receive units.

The following are a few simple examples of how you
could use the Xbee as an RF trigger. Links are provided to each examples own blog post;
  • ....sensor which turns on the serial data feed in the sender sketch. Click Here

  • ....servo which performs a movement each time the trigger is tripped. Click Here

  • ....a sensor performs a scan when RF trigger is tripped. Click Here
I have published each example in a new post so that for ease of use. I hope this helps you get started quickly or help you decide for yourself whether Xbee is the right tool for what you are intending to build yourself.

Please comment on any posts you found particularly useful and provide links to your own Xbee, RF or Arduino work.
