Sorry if this is somewhere in the forums or knowledge base but I can't find a satisfactory answer.
My project requires a control box with switches, into a microcontroller. This then goes into an XBee which is the ZigBee model. It sends a value determined by the state of the switches.
Other XBee modules receive this in broadcast mode to switch on output on the microcontroller they are connected to. This all works fine.
Where I'm not sure is, with a unit too far from the control, another one in between should relay the data as well as read it and use it itself - is this correct? That doesn't seem to work as expected for me.
Would this be done better using a Digimesh version instead?
Thanks for any feedback you can give.
