Completed my #ZigBee  sensor mote today. My goal was to make a small and inexpensive sensor mote so I decided to omit a  micro-controller and use the XBee's analog inputs. The XBee radio communicates with my RPi ZigBee Internet Gateway to post the sensor vales to the Internet. Since I don't have a 3D printer (yet) and haven't found a local hacker space with one, I used an Altoids tin for the case. Works great!

This sensor mote has so many uses, but it will probably end up in my liquor cabinet so I'll get a notification on my mobile phone any time someone goes poking around in there.
