Wireless Serial Data with XBee

At work we us a large system of warning lights and bells to signal when we are recording. The lights and bells keep noisy people and equipment out of the studio. Surprisingly no body has created a wireless solution for controlling such a system.

Today's market of cheap micro-controlers provide a great solution to solving this problem. I've been playing around with wireless XBee devices, paired with arduinos. And they are supper cool and easy to use.

The XBee devices I bought from ebay had been programmed for a different application when I received them. Once I was able to guess the baud rate I was able to reset them using the Digi X-CTU app.

Once I get the code worked out I plan to print some cases for the remote and start testing
