I am building a wireless system that has got an Arduino with a XBEE as the 'end user' and I need to acquire data/control that Arduino from a PC graphical interface. As far as I'm aware there are two options to obtain the communication:
I could use another Arduino with XBEE (coordinator) that is connected to my PC (serial) to control the 'end user'. The code is stored in this Arduino which works as a bypass between PC and XBEE.
I could simply use a XBEE without Arduino (coordinator) connected to my PC to control the 'end user'. The code should be stored within the PC or the XBEE to establish communication and control data transmission to different end users (???)
As I am new to the Arduino world, would you please direct me to the best/easiest solution to obtain such thing?
