The XBee Internet Gateway (“XIG”) is an application written for Digi’s ConnectPort series of XBee-to-IP gateways. The XBee Internet Gateway gives any device the ability to connect seamlessly to the Internet by mirroring the interactions humans have with web browsers. Devices with an XBee radio can send a web URL to the XIG and receive back the contents of that web page. All the tricky technical aspects of web connections are all handled for you behind the scenes.
This gateway gives your prototype or device a simple yet completely flexible pathway to any web service that you can imagine, including posting sensor values, scraping Facebook or commanding your robotic kitten army. It’s free to download and full documentation is available online. The XIG can be used independently. It can also be linked to iDigi for remote device network configuration and push features.
XIG is an open-source team effort lead by Internet of Things enthusiasts Rob Faludi, Jordan Husney and Ted Hayes with valuable support from a community of commercial and educational users.
