I can’t tell from the datasheet what kind of ranges it can handle. Obviously in the video the hand is less than a foot from the sensor, but what about 20 feet? 40 feet? 1000 feet?

also remember to have the xbee oriented properly.
the pointy part points away from the serial jack.
see sparkfun’s picture if you’re in doubt.
mine didn’t work, then i realized that the board needs power. the board says 5-16vdc. pretty sure serial doesn’t deliver power, and a USB to serial adapter probably doesn’t deliver power either.
red LED should come on by the on/off switch.
just to be safe, i set it to off before i connected everything.
digi recommended a straight up serial connection, so i bought this board instead of the USB. i was having issues with XCTU thru my Xbee –> Xbee arduino shield –> arduino, so that’s also why i bought this.
No public wish lists :(
