Firebreak USA Corporation is a leading manufacturer of perimeter wildfire detection systems. They needed a reliable way to connect in real-time to remotely deployed fire detection sensors in geographically challenging environments. They chose XBee ZB wireless modules embedded into fire detection sensors relay information to a ConnectPort X4 gateway. The gateway transmits this information via cellular or satellite to the iDigi cloud where it can be accessed in real-time and alerts and notifications can be programmed for predefined events. XBee ZB embedded RF modules bring wireless network connectivity to remote end-point devices. These low-cost, low-power modules require no configuration or additional development for out-of-the-box RF communications.
