My RF Woes Are OVER!

Posted on Updated on


Ok so after about 3 and a half weeks solid of looking at many many ways of trying to solve the issue of how to send 250kb files reliably and quickly over Xbee including API modes, different bauds, differing topologies, writing my own packet checking routines I by chance saw another radio by Ciseco and ordered a couple up it says they work out of the box – so I thought I’d put it to the test I knew the software worked it was pack loss that was the issue so I just plugged them in one to a camera the other to the central node… I turned them on…

And they worked perfectly… huh? Perfectly so I took the camera downstairs got my wife to jump around and sure enough through 3 walls it was working perfectly! mmm outside… perfectly – I was amazed and overwhelmed! It seems they have hardware ack and nak packet checking meaning you don’t have to do a thing and they work right out of the box… after spending weeks on these I cannot recommend them enough!

Thank you Ciseco for saving the day and the project (again)!!!
