In this example, MATLAB is used to continuously monitor the temperature throughout an apartment by interacting with a wireless network of temperature sensors built using XBee Series 2 modules. Each XBee edge-node reads analog voltages (that are linearly proportional to the temperature) from multiple temperature sensors. The readings are transmitted back to MATLAB via a coordinator XBee module. This example illustrates how to manipulate, acquire, and analyze data from a network of multiple sensors connected to multiple XBee edge-nodes. Data are acquired over periods ranging from hours to days to help design and build a smart thermostat system.
