Looking for 802.15.4 ZigBee-type module with smarts? XBee with more features? Check out Synapse modules! Small, low-power, 2.4 GHz plug-in transmitter-receiver modules, with an extended range up to three miles and power consumption as low as 2.5uA.
The Synapse Wireless SNAP wireless data solution is the latest in intelligent wireless communication modules. Synapse takes 802.15.4 Zigbee/XBee style communication one step further, and makes it smart.
Synapse modules are microcontroller-based, and designed to inherently mesh together. The SNAP software lets you access every node in the network from a single point (base-station/microcontroller/PC equipped with module), and as they already have a microcontroller, these can be used stand-alone!
The modules themselves are reprogrammable, and use embedded Python as their programming language. These modules even make available the extra I/O, analog-to-digital converters and timers! These are smart 802.15.4-based modules!

A small, low-power, 2.4 GHz plug-in transmitter-receiver module with an extended range up to three miles and power consumption as low as 2.5 uA. The RF Engine Modules come loaded with the Synapse SNAP network stack and will immediately integrate into the network and start routing signals from other nodes. Typical applications include a wireless serial port, sensor monitoring, actuator control, or an intelligent embedded controller - the possibilities are limitless. Synapse RF Engine modules can be used in conjunction with off-the-shelf SNAP nodes or to power custom wireless nodes that have been developed by third-parties such as the end-user
