$131.99

Product #: MSBUN23

The Building Wireless Sensor Networks starter pack includes the core parts needed for many of the projects in the book, including a complete Arduino- and XBee-powered wireless network that delivers remotely-sensed data.

The kit, with the addition of (2) XBee Series 2 modules (sold separately) you'll be able to complete the following projects from the book Building Wireless Sensor Networks (also sold separately):
    • Chapter 2: Basic ZigBee Chat
    • Chapter 3: Doorbell Projects (requires an additional Arduino Uno and one additional breadboard, sold separately)
    • Chapter 4: Romantic Lighting Sensor (requires one additional breadboard, sold separately; Two 2AA battery holders and 4 AA batteries are suggested if you want to run the sensor nodes on battery power)

Please note: The book, Building Wireless Sensor Networks with ZigBee, XBee, Arduino, and Processing By Robert Faludi, is not included in the bundle. Neither are the XBee series 2 radios.
