Tweet-A-Watt to Arduino (xbee)

by jkelley on Tue Jun 12, 2012 11:31 am

All the documentation for the Tweet-A-Watt has the data being transmitted to a dedicated computer via xbee. What would it take for it to send the data to an Arduino with xbee receiver instead of a computer? How does the Arduino see the data? Thanks for any info. I'm new to xbee and arduino but have been hacking with Arduino's of various makes for a while now.

Yes, that is possible. Just connect the receiver XBee's Rx/Tx to a pair of digital pins and use SoftwareSerial to receive the data.
