The XBee-PRO 900 RF module is ideally suited for low-latency point-to-multipoint networking applications. Capable of point-to-point, peer-to-peer and point-to-multipoint networking, the XBee-900 is ideal for solutions where RF penetration and absolute transmission distance are paramount to the application.
As a member of the XBee family of RF products, the module is easy-to-use, shares a common footprint, and leverages Digi’s Drop-in Networking solutions including gateways and adapters. No configuration is necessary for out-of-the-box RF communications. The module’s default configuration supports a wide range of data system applications. Advanced configurations can be implemented using simple serial AT commands.

**Note: **Some users have found that the XBee-PRO 900 cannot be used with the XBee Explorer Regulated. One workaround is to change the TX and RX pullups in the XCTU software to be enabled. Or you can bypass diode D1 on the Explorer.
Note: Due to the manufacturer's restrictions in other countries, we can only ship these to the USA and Canada. Sorry world!
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Got a pair of these for a remote timing display. With a pair of directional antennas, got well over 300 yard range. The only downside is it won't run for more than a couple of hours on a 9 volt battery. (The adapter board I'm using runs on 5 to 9 volts.) Going to try a USB 5 volt power source, and see what happens.
