Digi International, a global M2M Service Provider launched the XBee® ZigBee Cloud Kit, a new all-in-one kit that allows anyone with an interest in M2M and the Internet of Things to quickly build a wireless hardware prototype, connect it to the Internet, and control it from the cloud. The IEEE 802.15 standard-based ZigBee is used to create personal area networks built from small, low-power digital radios from 10–100 meters.

The Minnesota based company said that the XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit is simple enough to help non-engineers to get their creations connected to the cloud in 30 minutes and flexible enough for professionals to build rapid prototypes with advanced programming and cloud-based data sets. The unit is priced at USD199.

The kit which is built around Digi’s XBee ZigBee Gateway, includes code examples and powerful tools to easily create cloud-connected projects. It provides access to the Internet which enables remote control of the device and data through a customizable application. Digi said that the XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit’s low price point makes it a perfect choice for professional and student prototypers and for product developers interested in quickly creating cloud-connected solutions.

Each kit contains:

  1. - 1 XBee Gateway – ZigBee to Ethernet/Wi-Fi
  2. - 1 XBee-PRO ZigBee 2.4GHz module
  3. - 1 Development board with breadboard
  4. - Basic prototyping components
    1. - Wires, LEDs, Relay, Resistors, Temp Sensor
  5. - Sample Web Application (Runs on Heroku)
    1. - Open Source
    2. - Configurable Widgets
    3. - Integrated with Device Cloud

Connecting hardware creations to the Internet of Things should be easy. You can build a prototype that integrates Internet connectivity into ZigBee devices based on Digi’s bestselling XBee module platform. We’re excited to see what great new innovations will flow from this type of prototyping capability.
