Shelves: making
The version of this book that I read didn't make it completely clear that this book is focused only on Zigbee protocol devices. Zigbee is a great protocol and is fascinating in that it has a built-in mesh networking protocol. However, the devices are pretty expensive, and so if you need simple sensor nodes for a project, you might want to try something else. There are a lot of commercial Zigbee based devices, so if you don't want to roll your own devices, Zigbee might be a good way to go. In tha ...more
