    Hi forumites, has anyone used or in the process of using Zigbee wifi products. I wish to attempt to build my own home automation system and find that this product range is used some of the commercial products available. If anyone has undergone a project of the same nature using these products i would like to know what they thought about them and where they obtained the parts

    Digikey sells the Zigbee stuff (XBee) and it's pretty neat. You can get the development kit and it's comes with all the dodads you need to get a pair of them up and running on a pair of computers. I've used the XBee Pros and they're very nice, they work like old Hayes MoDems (AT type commands) The new ones support mesh networking, ideal for home automation.
