XBee

build_status_badge pypi_badge py_versions_badge

XBee provides an implementation of the XBee serial communication API. It allows one to easily access advanced features of one or more XBee devices from an application written in Python. An example use case might look like this:

#! /usr/bin/python

# Import and init an XBee device
from xbee import XBee, ZigBee
import serial

ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyUSB0', 9600)

# Use an XBee 802.15.4 device
xbee = XBee(ser)
# To use with an XBee ZigBee device, replace with:
# xbee = ZigBee(ser)

# Set remote DIO pin 2 to low (mode 4)
xbee.remote_at(
    dest_addr=b'\x56\x78',
    command='D2',
    parameter=b'\x04')

xbee.remote_at(
    dest_addr=b'\x56\x78',
    command='WR')

Installation

pip install xbee

Install from Source

Extract the source code to your computer, then run the following command in the root of the source tree:
