Connection XBee Series 2 (AKA ZB Pro/ZNet) to an arduino
not-a-rocket-surgeon-style step-by-step Xbee Tutorial. Just to save some time if you lost your mind.
My goal was to have two xbee series 2 modules communicate to each other in a two way configuration. I found the the various instructions on the internets to be confusing and hard to follow (but then again, I am no Rocket Surgeon).
if you are not on windows and want to fine some alternatives to XCTU, just check this nice & interesting tutorial using a python-based app to configure the Xbees. (—>thanks to Giovanni!)
