Upgrading Xbee Series 2 (XbeeShield) to Xbee ZB with Arduino

As stated in this digi page is possible to upgrade/convert a Xbee Series 2.5 to a Xbee ZB (with full standard Zigbee capabilities). Xbee Series 2.5 is just another name for the forme Series 2, so the upgrade procedure is exactly the same.

The procedure if fairly straighforward

NOTE 2: Be aware that putting XBee to sleep will also raise DIO7 and produce and Arduino reset. See this other post on XBee sleep and Arduino reset
