MINNETONKA, MN and MUNICH -- Digi International announces the launch of 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 XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit is simple enough to help non-engineers 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.
Built around Digi's XBee ZigBee Gateway, the XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit includes code examples and powerful tools to easily create cloud-connected projects. It includes access to the Internet which enables remote control of the device and data through a customizable application.
Each kit contains:
•1 XBee Gateway – ZigBee to Ethernet/Wi-Fi
•1 XBee-PRO ZigBee 2.4GHz module
•1 Development board with breadboard
•Basic prototyping components ◦Wires, LEDs, Relay, Resistors, Temp Sensor
•Sample Web Application (Runs on Heroku) •Open Source
•Integrated with Device Cloud
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.
"Connecting hardware creations to the Internet of Things should be easy," said Joel Young, chief technology officer for Digi. "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."
The XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit is available for $199 MSRP. For more information or to purchase, visit: http://www.digi.com/zigbeecloudkit
