https://www.digi.com/products/xbee-rf-solutions/xctu-software/xctu

install:

 

  • enter cd /home/user/Downloads
  • enter chmod +x some-app.run
  • enter ./some-app.run

 

How to configure:

  1. Open xctu
  2. Connect zigbeestick.
  3. Click on Add devices (to add a radio module)
  4. Select a serial/usb port. It is showing USB after I connected the zigbeestick.
  5. Select it.

Now it appears in the xctu ‘radio modules’ tab:

Select it. Now click on the “Discover radio nodes in the same network” button. If there is any sensor in the same network add it.

Important:

Device (such as Zigbeestick) and sensors with same PAN-ID can talk to each other. It means, only sensors with same PAN-ID can be explored via the Device.

  • You can change the Node identifier if you want.
  • But, if you change PAN ID, it will not talk to the same Zigbeestick anymore. So, be careful.

If you want to give a new PAN ID:

  • then give it to sensor first. Save the profile before removing the sensor.
  • Then give the PAN ID to Device. Save the profile before removing.
