I’m exploring the use of XBee Pro S2B for an application that needs to rely on battery power. As per the spec, Xbee uses around 200 mA while transmission. The main attraction is that it has a range of 2 miles outdoor. The application will use Xbee only on a need basis, turning on/off the module as required. I assume photon is better than core from a power consumption perspective.
I came across the remote door monitoring application posted by @krvarma, but I guess it uses line power.
My question is : Is it practical to use Xbee with photon in a battery powered scenario? Appreciate your view points. Thanks.
