Electron/photon drop in replacement for XBee?


#1

Hello , we use a lot of XBees for various purposes, sometimes an Xbee is needed because its frequency can cut through the powerful drone’s 2.4Ghz, but sometimes we use our kit on other stuff where we would like to rather use a photon or electron.

right now we need to write code on the particle device and have awkward jumpers from the difficuly Xbee headers to the particle RX/TX, and power pins.
Wouldnt it be good to have a particle board that simply plugs straight into the xbee headers and gives us all the fantastic features of the particle environment without needing to write any code, just get your two particles on the network and the second one receives all the data from the first one and outputs it to serial.


XBee Radios - Anybody Using Them?
