    We are trying to decide how many modules need battery power and how many should be lined-powered in our system.  Do you have any guidelines to follow?

    Hi bmazur,

    I would recommend looking at the book ZigBee Wireless Networks and Transcievers,  by Shahin Farahani.  Chapter one and two are a good start in understanding ZigBee Basics and simple Networking examples.  ZigBee.org also has a number of good videos.   You will want at least one lined-powered coordinator and possibly more lined-powered devices that can help to strengthen your mesh.

    Regards,
