We would like to use an XBee Series 1 radio on our robots. XBee Series 1 uses a protocol that’s based on Zigbee but it’s not sold as a Zigbee radio. We looked it up but aren’t really certain if it’s allowed as communicating “via ZigBee” in Rule 2.4. Is it allowed?
Thanks trying out the forums and asking a question like this!
I have a quick counter question: would this module use the 802.15.4 protocol, even though it is not sold as a Zigbee radio? In that case, it should be OK.
It seems that it might be worth updating the rules with this information too.
Yes. The XBee S1 uses 802.15.4.
Thanks @BenditLikeBeckOhm, XBee S1 should be OK.
Hopefully, the rules will reflect that too in the future – I’ll propose an appropriate change.
Hi, we will use “TWELITE”.
TWELITE use IEEE802.15.4.
Maybe, xbee s1 is same TWELITE.
If xbee s1 is ok, TWELITE is ok ?
That is correct, as long as your module utilizes the IEEE802.15.4 protocol, the rules regard it in the same way as ZigBee, which is explicitly allowed.
