I'm not too well versed technically on ZigBee but I have been considering adding the XBee modules to an embedded networked domotica controller that I have designed for xAP, HomeVision, 1-wire and C-Bus.
I already have a large investment in the ZigBee based Plugwise modules (30+) and what i wanted to ask is what level of compatibility, if any, might be between these devices ? Might the devices cooperate in a mesh network such that I can use my housewide coverage to link two XBee modules for example ? Will my problem be the configuration ie associating devices with the mesh if they are from different vendors ? Or should I just treat the Plugwise network as just inaccessible to other ZigBee modules ?
edit: Reading another post here maybe I need to use the XBee ZB Series 2 modules as they seem to implement the non proprietory Digi meshing ?
