How to use xBee modules as transmitter & receiver - Arduino Tutorial
In this tutorial we will use two xBee (series 1) modules with the Arduino uno board. We will configure them to act as a receiver and transmitter to control the brightness of an LED wirelessly by using one potentiometer.The xBee - series 1 - modules take the 802.15.4 stack (the basis for Zigbee) and wrap it into a simple to use serial command set. These modules allow a very reliable and simple communication between micro controllers, computers or other systems by using just a serial port…
How simple, internet-connected lightbulbs can 'go nuclear' and risk a city
A vulnerability in Philips hue light bulbs connected Zigbee makes it possible for a bad actor to take control over neighboring networks. Lessons learned: 1. IoT is not secure by default. 2. Vulnerabilities will need patching. 3. Always update to latest firmware. 4. Security is an iterative process, not a product setting.
