(Nasdaq: DGII) today introduced the XBee wall router, a ZigBee router used
to expand a ZigBee network's range. By plugging into standard power
sockets, XBee wall routers are easy-to-install building blocks for
self-healing ZigBee networks and ideal for creating robust Drop-in
"The XBee wall router's small form factor and ease of deployment make
it perfect for creating Drop-in Networks," said Larry Kraft, senior vice
president of sales and marketing, Digi International. "Installation is easy
and completely unobtrusive."
The XBee wall router is designed to patch areas within a ZigBee network
where signal erosion or loss occurs due to distance limitations or air
interference. It also creates multiple pathways, increasing the redundancy
of mesh communications to ensure maximum network reliability.
The XBee wall router can be used with Digi's ConnectPort(TM) X
gateways, XBee embedded modules, XBee adapters or XBee sensors to "drop-in"
end-to-end device networks without the need for a wired network
infrastructure. It includes two environmental sensors for temperature and
light that allow customers using the ConnectPort X gateway to receive data
for environmental monitoring and control. It also features a built-in
mounting tab that allows the wall router to be securely screwed into
standard wall sockets using the existing mounting screw hole. This prevents
accidental unplugging of the device and reduces the risk of theft or
The XBee wall router is now available for $79 manufacturer suggested
retail price (MSRP). For more information about the XBee wall router,
Drop-in Networking solutions provide the ability to network devices or
groups of devices where no pre-deployed networking infrastructure exists or
where access to an existing infrastructure is prohibited. For more
