I've recently purchased a JeeNode(5), USB BUB II and various parts. I would eventually like to build a rather large mesh network to tie numerous sensors and switches together around the property that I maintain.
My choice for the JeeNode was because I would like to read from off-the-shelf transmitters like La Cross weather stations like what was done at http://www.f6fbb.org/domo/sensors/index.php and here: http://mysite.verizon.net/kajordahl/weather.html .
I guess my first question would be: Am I barking up the wrong tree here?
I've run a modified RFDemo sketch and got it to dump nibbles and bytes in decimal, hex and BCD. Of course, all the packets fail because they don't originate from another JeeNode (waiting on a RFM12B Board for my Arduino. - It's like clapping with one hand.). Question #2: For RFDemo: What's a packet? I mean, is it just the entire data stream between quiet times? I get packets that are from 0 to 255 bytes long (running with the '0' group option.) Does everything over 255 get pitched, or does the next packet pick up where the prior one truncated?
I've got more, but I guess I'll wait for the answer on the first one.
