Assembling Hardware

Installing X-CTU

https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/90001526/tasks/t_download_and_install_xctu.htm

Add Your Xbee

The configuration of your XBee.

Channel = C
PAN ID = 3332
DH = 0
DL = 0
MY = 0

After Uploading The Code

1/ Open the Arduino's Serial Monitor. Make sure the baud rate is set to 9600.

2/ On your X-CTU click on console mode.

3/ Type something in the console view, it should show up on the Serial Monitor.

4/Now try typing something into the Arduino's Serial Monitor , then press send ,it should show up in the console view.

Code

XbeeArduino.ino

Arduino
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial XBee(2, 3);

void setup()
{
  XBee.begin(9600);
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  if (Serial.available())
  { 
    XBee.write(Serial.read());
      }
  if (XBee.available())
  { 
    Serial.write(XBee.read());
      }
}
