Xbee used standalone as a transmitter?
I have a simple application that needs a wireless transmitter to wake up every 5 minutes, read the ADC, transmit the value, then go back to sleep. Battery life will be critical, thus the sleep cycle necessity.
I'd like to purchase the Xbee units from you to do this, but I'd like to know up front if I will need a microprocessor to tell the xbee (transmitter) what to do.
The receiver end is much simpler because battery life will not be an issue.
