I'm looking to buy some components to my master thesis: I have to create a sort of lab where I'll create a Zigbee network and some tasks on it.
I'm wondering if I should buy XBee series 1 or 2 and why aren't they compatible. My lab will also have WeMo belkin lamps, xiaomi door sensor, 5 arduino with Xbee module and a Raspberry Pi. I just have one chance to buy materials because I've got limited time.
What should I buy to make all compatible and create a proper and functional ZigBee network? Thanks a lot for your time
