ZIGBEE SMART ENERGY
Description
The ZigBee Smart Energy Profile defines a wireless home area network (HAN) to
manage energy in residential areas. These networks are local to the home and connect
through a gateway back to the Utility head-end application. The current devices defined
for Smart Energy are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Meter - Reports consumption of energy, water, gas, etc.
Energy Service Interface (ESI) - Gateway from the Utility head-end to the HAN.
Formerly refered to as Energy Service Portal (ESP)
In-Premise Display (IPD) - Displays consumption and pricing information for the
consumer. Also refered to as In-Home Display (IHD)
Programmable Communicating Thermostat (PCT) - Smart thermostat.
Load Control Device - Can limit or turn off power to devices during high load
times.
Range Extender - Fills in gaps in wireless HAN.
Smart Appliance (not currently defined)
Pre-Payment Terminal (not currently defined)
Advantages
Advantages of a ZigBee Smart Energy network:
•
•
•
Automated meter reading - Remotely report meter usage for Electric, Gas,
Water, etc. in real time.
Reduce peak power usage - Accomplished through mandatory energy reduction
events and financial motivation using pricing.
Empower customers - Give customers access to real time meter usage data and
pricing. Also creates a network connection to devices like thermostats in the home
which may be used to remotely control set points and setbacks (not part of SE
specification but possible through manufacturer extensions).

CONNECTPORT X2 FOR SMART ENERGY
Description
The Digi ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy is a gateway on a Smart Energy network that
provides secure access to a ZigBee Smart Energy network over the internet. The
gateway is set up to take advantage of connection management services offered by the
iDigi™ platform, and to intelligently handle SE events in order to reduce the need for
communication and micro management by utility applications.
There are three Smart Energy certified software applications for the gateway on the
ZigBee network:
Name
Smart Energy Device Type
ESI Coordinator
Energy Service Interface (ESI)
Coordinator / Trust Center
ESI Router
Energy Service Interface (ESI)
Router
In-Premise Display (IPD)
Router
Aux Gateway
Node Type
All of the configurations use the same core Python SE_Framework codebase and share
much of the same functionality. The difference between the node types are as follows:
•
•
Coordinator - Forms the Smart Energy network and acts as the trust center. All
devices joining the network must be authenticated with the trust center.
Router - Joins the Smart Energy network through the trust center. Typically, a
Smart Meter will act as the trust center on the network.
The Smart Energy device type determines whether Smart Energy clusters supported by
the gateway are servers or clients. The ESI is defined by Smart Energy to support the
server side clusters. These clusters create and cancel Smart Energy events; for
example, publishing the price of commodities like electricity on the network. The Energy
Service Interface supports the following clusters:
•
•
•
Time server - Synchronizes real time clock for all of the devices on the ZigBee
network.
Demand Response/Load Control (DRLC) server - Manages DRLC events
which can change temperature set points on thermostats, water heaters, and spas
or turn off devices in the home to prevent brownouts during high peak energy
situations.
Price server - Manages pricing events that set the price of different commodities
using a start time and duration in one minute intervals. For example, increasing
the price of electricity during peak hours in the evening and decreasing price
4
•
•
during low demand times at night. Pricing can be set in real time to respond to
demand or ahead of time to allow customers to plan energy usage.
Messaging server - Sends messages to a customer through ZigBee network.
Messages can require confirmation from the customer.
Metering client - Reads the metering usage data from meters on the network.
The client side clusters receive the events and act on them; for example, a thermostat
may receive a published price event for electricity and change the heating setpoint to
save money. The gateway makes these events available on the internet for other
devices to act on, or for reporting purposes. The In-Premise Display Smart Energy
device type supports the following clusters:
•
•
Time client - Synchronizes real time clock with the time server on the ZigBee
network.
Demand Response / Load Control (DRLC) client - Receives DRLC events from
the server and reports them through iDigi. The gateway handles canceled and
overlapping events and provides updates when the currently active list of events
changes.
•
Price client - Receives price events for all available commodities from the price
servers. The gateway also tracks when the prices of commodities change and
provides updates through iDigi.
•
Messaging client - Receives messages from the server and reports them
through iDigi. The gateway allows users to confirm messages, handles canceled
messages, and provides updates when the currently active message changes.
Metering client - Reads the metering usage data from meters on the network.
•

CHAPTER 1
Upon completion of the Getting Started section you will be able to:
•
•
•
•
•
Create an account on iDigi.com
Configure your gateway
Connect your gateway to iDigi.com
Communicate with the gateway's RPC API through iDigi
Add other devices to the gateway's network
The ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy Starter Kit includes an XStick SE. You may also
convert an XStick ZB, Digi XBee USB adapter, or other serially-attached XBee to SE.
With one of these devices you will be able to:
•
•
•
Simulate basic Smart Energy devices: In-Premise Display, Meter
Add simulated devices to the gateway's network
Communicate between the gateway and the simulated devices
Devices on a Smart Energy network will vary widely between installations. Procedures in
the User’s Manual frequently specify generic tasks. See the manual that came with any
devices you are joining to the gateway for details on how to apply these procedures. A
sample is provided that uses a serially-attached XBee to simulate various Smart Energy
devices and is useful for evaluation and development. When a procedure in this manual
calls for a second device other than the gateway this sample can be used. (See “InPremise Display/Meter Simulator Sample” on page 30.)
The user is also expected to have a means of sending RPC requests and receiving RPC
responses from the gateway to access the Smart Energy Framework's API. In an actual
installation this functionality would be provided by the utility application. In order to
evaluate the gateway and for use during development a web application is provided to
communicate with the gateway. When a procedure in this manual calls for sending an
RPC request to your gateway this sample can be used. (See “iDigi SE Web Sample,
Communicating with Gateway” on page 24.)

SET UP IDIGI AND GATEWAY
Introduction to iDigi
The iDigi Platform is a network management solution that provides easy integration for
M2M (Machine-to-Machine) and mesh networking devices. iDigi is based on a cloud
computing model that provides for on-demand scalability and high-availability. It lowers
the barriers to building secure, scalable, cost-effective solutions that seemlessly tie
together enterprise applications and remote devices regardless of their location or
network.
iDigi is a secure, publicly accessible platform allowing remote devices to access it with
little or no configuration. There is no need for connections to be opened through your
DMZ in order for your devices to access iDigi. iDigi is accessed through the iDigi Portal,
so by using a standard web browser you can configure network hardware, track device
performance, remotely set filters and alarms, monitor device connections, device status
and statistics, reboot devices, reset defaults, and remotely upgrade firmware for all the
devices in your iDigi network.
See “Resources” on page 7 for a list of on-line documents that provide more information
about iDigi.
12
Create an Account on iDigi.com
To get started, set up an account on the iDigi Platform as follows.
1. Navigate to http://www.idigi.com.
2. Click on the iDigi Platform Login button.
13
3. If you already have an account enter your user credentials in the User Name and
Password fields, then click the Log on button. For new users, click on the "Are you a
new user" link and create your account.
14
Configure the Gateway
Connect and Power on the ConnectPort X2
1. Unpack the ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy gateway.
2. Connect the power supply to the X2 gateway and connect the power supply to an
electrical outlet.
Note:
(International version only): Connect the power supply to a power cable (not included),
and the power cable to an outlet.
3. Connect an Ethernet cable from the gateway to your hub or switch that provides
access to the Internet.
Point Gateway to developer.idigi.com
By default, your Connectport X2 gateway points to energy.digi.com. This is our
production server. For your development purposes, you can have up to five devices
added to your account at developer.idigi.com.
Note:
Older versions of the gateway may instead be pointed to device.digi.com. Use the same
following steps to redirect the gateway to the correct server.
To configure your gateway properly, point the device to developer.idigi.com in the
following manner:
1
Use the Digi Device Discovery application (see “Resources” on page 7) to determine your
gateway’s IP address.
2
Telnet to this address, then type in the following commands:
login: root
password: dbps
#> set mgmtconnection svraddr1=”http://developer.idigi.com” conntype=client
This will tell the gateway where to look for a server, specifically “http://
developer.idigi.com. Now, type the “who” command to get the number of the process
currently controlling where the gateway points. In this case, it’s process ID 1. Kill this
process, as shown below.
#> who

After this process, you will be ready to add the gateway to your iDigi device list.
Add Gateway to the idigi.com Device List
To add a gateway to the device list, follow these steps:
1. Log into the iDigi.com user portal using the username and password you just created.
The iDigi Platform interface is displayed.
16
2. In the Devices list, click the
button to bring up the Add Devices dialog.
17
3. Locate and select your device from the list of locally discovered devices and click the
‘OK’ button. If your device was not found in the list, check that it is turned on and connected to the same local network as your PC and click the ‘Refresh’ button. Adding
your device through automatic discovery informs iDigi about the device and configures that device to connect to the iDigi Connectivity server.
Note:
If the device is not locally accessible or cannot be automatically discovered, you can still add it by
clicking the 'Add Manually' button and enter the MAC address found on the bottom of the device.
4. Wait a few moments and click the Refresh button to ensure that your device status is
now Connected.
5. Select your device and double-click it, or right-click and select Properties.
18
6. Your device information will load into a separate tab.
19
ADD DEVICES TO THE ZIGBEE SE NETWORK
The Google App sample may be used to send RPC requests to the gateway. (See “iDigi
SE Web Sample, Communicating with Gateway” on page 24.) Please read this section
first if you do not have a means of sending RPC requests to the gateway. Additionally,
the In-Premise Display/Meter Simulator sample may be used to simulate devices to add
to your network. (See “In-Premise Display/Meter Simulator Sample” on page 30.)
Smart Energy Security Overview
Smart Energy imposes security protocols above and beyond a normal ZigBee network.
Devices join the encrypted Smart Energy network using a pre-shared link key or
installation code (installation codes are hashed into link keys). In a Smart Energy
network, each device can have its own link key or installation code. After a device joins
the network it will initiate key establishment.
During key establishment the trust center will establish an APS link key with the device.
This key is used to encrypt critical data between the trust center and the joining device so
that no other device can decrypt the data portion of the message. The trust center can
also establish APS keys for any two authenticated devices so that they can securely
communicate as well.
Key establishment utilizes certificates on both the trust center and joining device to
authenticate that the device has been certified. Generally certificates are either
production certificates or test certificates and all devices on a network must be of the
same type. The X2 gateway is manufactured with a production certificate. See “Appendix
B” on page 131 for instructions on obtaining and installing a test certificate.
The following generic steps need to be taken for a device to join:
1. Install test or production certificate on joining device to match Smart Energy network.
If joining device is already configured with an appropriate certificate this step may not
be necessary.
2. Register link key/installation code of joining device with the trust center.
3. Enable joining on the Smart Energy network.
4. Instruct joining device to join the Smart Energy network.

In order to add a device to the Smart Energy network with the X2 gateway running as a
trust center (ESI coordinator), use the add_device RPC request (see
“add_device_response Parameters:” on page 73). This will add a device with the given
link key or installation code to the device table stored in the ESI. Joining will be enabled
for the specified amount of time (set in this example to 600 seconds). Fill in the
device_address and link_key as appropriate to match the joining device. If using an
installation code replace link_key with installation_code.
This request has the following format:
<add_device>
<device_address type="MAC">11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88</device_address>
<join_time>600</join_time>
<link_key type=”base16”>56777777777777777777777777777777</link_key>
</add_device>
Once the add_device RPC request has been sent, instruct the joining device to join the
network. Once a device joins the network, the gateway will return a message with the
following format:
<message timestamp=”1273104009.18”>
<description type=”string”>
ZDO_Device_Manager - Device 11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88 detected and marked as
active
</description>
<severity type=”int”>0x1</severity>
</message>
Joining a Router Gateway
By default, router gateways (ESI router and Aux Gateway) will automatically try to join
any network on any channel on startup using their pre-configured installation code.
These joining parameters can be configured with the get_zigbee_network_configuration
RPC request (see “get_zigbee_network_configuration” on page 78). This request
configures the interval between join attempts, the scan channel mask for joining, the
installation code and the extended PAN ID.
<get_zigbee_network_configuration>
<extended_pan_id>0</extended_pan_id>
<installation_code type=”base16”>1234567890ABBA9E</installation_code>
<join_attempt_interval>120</join_attempt_interval>
<channel_mask>0xFFFF</channel_mask>
<eui type=”MAC”>00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77</eui>
</get_zigbee_network_configuration>
21
All of the parameters are optional. The response will give the current value for
everything but the link key and the installation code. Once a router gateway has joined a
network, the gateway will return a message with the following format:
<message>
<status type=”int”>0x1</status>
<description type=”string”>Local device detected that it is joined to a ZigBee
network</description>
<severity type=”int”>0x1</severity>
</message>
Verify Device is on Gateway’s Network
To verify that a device is joined to the gateway's network, use the identify RPC request
(see “identify” on page 88). This request should make the device physically identify itself
in some way. The X2 gateways will blink the association LED at a faster rate after
receiving a ZCL Identify command.
This request has the following format:
<identify>
<destination_address type="MAC">11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88</destination_address>
<source_endpoint_id>0x5E</source_endpoint_id>
<destination_endpoint_id>0xFF</destination_endpoint_id>
<identify_time>30</identify_time>
</identify>
Fill in the destination_address and destination_endpoint_id as appropriate to match the
joining device. The identify_time parameter specifies how long the device should identify
itself in seconds.
Get List of Devices on Network
To get a list of devices on a gateway's network, use the get_device_information RPC
request (see “get_device_information” on page 74). This request will retrieve all currently
known information about all devices on the network from the gateway, including
endpoints and clusters. The response will show which devices are active - have joined
the network and are currently communicating with the gateway.
This RPC request has the following format:
< get_device_information />
The response has the following format:
22
<get_device_information_response timestamp="1257799818.0">

Remove Device
To remove a device from the network, use the remove_device RPC request (see
“remove_device” on page 73). This request will send a ZDO Mgmt_Leave_req to the
device, remove the device from the list returned by get_device_information_response,
and if the gateway is a trust center (ESI coordinator), unregister the link key / installation
code for this device from the XBee.
This request has the following format:
<remove_device>
<device_address type="MAC">
11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88
</device_address>
</remove_device>

IDIGI SE WEB SAMPLE, COMMUNICATING WITH GATEWAY
Overview
This sample provides a simple demonstration of a system which communicates with a
ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy through iDigi using the RPC interface.
Because this sample provides generic access to the RPC interface, it may be used to
communicate with the gateway for other samples and development.
How to Use this Sample
1. Go to www.idigi-se.appspot.com.
2. Enter your iDigi username and password and click Login.
25
3. On the Options window, select the device ID of your gateway and click Save.
26
4. On the Debug Console page, messages sent by the gateway will appear in the output
window. If the gateway has just been turned on, some initialization messages may be
displayed in the window.
27
5. Query the gateway for available commands by clicking the Refresh Command List
button. This will populate the command list.
28
6. Select a command from the list and modify parameters as necessary. Click Execute.
29
XML requests and responses will appear in the output window and can be expanded by
clicking on them.
30
IN­PREMISE DISPLAY/METER SIMULATOR SAMPLE
Overview
This sample simulates the basic functionality of a Smart Energy In-Premise Display or
Meter with an XBee attached to a personal computer such as an XStick, XBee USB
adapter, or other serially-attached XBee. It can be used to demonstrate Smart Energy
functionality when real SE IPDs and meters are not convenient or available. If you do not
already have one of these devices they may be purchased from the Digi website.
XBee modules are not Smart Energy certified for standalone use. In order to join the
XBee module to the gateway a test certificate will need to be installed on both the XBee
module and the gateway. See “Appendix B” on page 131 for more details on installing
test certificates. In particular, obtain a test certificate for both the gateway and the XBee
module and install the gateway's test certificate prior to executing the following
procedure.
Getting Started
1. Connect the serially-attached XBee to your personal computer.
2. Upgrade the serially-attached XBee to use Smart Energy router firmware if it is not
already. Full instructions and firmware can be found in the ZB to SE conversion kit at
http://ftp1.digi.com/support/images/zb-to-smart-energy-conversion-kit.zip.
3. Download and install the In-Premise Display/Meter Simulator from www.digi.com/
X2SE
4. Start In-Premise Display/Meter Simulator.
31
5. Select the COM port and baud rate of your serially-attached XBee and click Open
COM Port. The Baud rate is shown below as 115200 but will commonly need to be
set to 9600 after following instructions in the ZB to SE Conversion Kit.
32
6. Load the test certificate information that corresponds to the serially-attached XBee.
This can be accomplished in two ways:
Load Cert From File
a. Click Load Cert From File.
b. Select the test certificate file that corresponds to the EUI field under XBee Settings and click Open.
33
Manual Entry
a. Manually enter the CA Public Key, Implicit Cert and Private Key.
7. Write the Certificate to the serially-attached XBee by clicking Write Certificate.
8. Enter a 128-bit hex value of your choosing into the Link Key field and click Set Link
Key to write the link key to the serially-attached XBee. Alternately, you may enter
Install Code, a 48-, 64-, 96-, or 128-bit hex value (including 16-bit CRC), and click Set
Install Code to write a link key computed from the install code to the serially-attached
XBee.
34
9. Enable joining on the trust center and register the link key / installation code of the
XBee. If using an ESI coordinator, send an add_device RPC request to the gateway
in order to allow the serially-attached XBee to join the gateway's network. Set the
parameters of the request to correspond to the serially-attached XBee and to enable
joining.
10. Click Attempt to Join Network and wait until XBee Status indicates that the XBee
has joined with the network. The XBee Status field will display status indicators as it
attempts to join. In case of failure these indicators may aid in troubleshooting.
35
Network View
The Network tab provides a convenient overview of all endpoints and clusters of devices
which have been detected on the network. The information displayed should closely
match the information returned by a get_device_information RPC request sent to the
gateway (see “get_device_information” on page 74).
To detect new devices, endpoints and clusters click Partial Refresh. To clear and
rediscover all known device information, click Full Refresh.
36
ZCL attributes can be read and written from the Network Tab after selecting an attribute.
In-Premise Display
To create an In-Premise Display endpoint, go to the In-Premise Display tab and click the
Enable In-Premise Display check box. This will create Price, Messaging and Simple
Metering client clusters on a new endpoint on the simulated device.
The sample will display the price from any price servers on the network. If there is an
ESI gateway on the network, send it a create_price_event RPC request to set the current
price. Here is an example:
<create_price_event>
<record type="PublishPriceRecord">
<provider_id>1234</provider_id>
<issuer_event_id>0xABCD</issuer_event_id>
<duration_in_minutes>10</duration_in_minutes>
<price>100</price>
</record>
37
</create_price_event>
The price event will automatically be sent to all known Price client clusters. You should
see the new price value appear. If there is an Aux Gateway on the network, it should
receive the price event and return a “received_price_event” (see “received_price_event
on page 114) response and an “updated_active_price_event” (see
“updated_active_price_event” on page 114), assuming there was not another price event
with a matching issuer_event_id.
The sample will also display any active messages on the network. If there is an ESI
gateway on the network, send it a create_message_event RPC request to display a
message. Here is an example:
<create_message_event synchronous=”true”>
<record type=”DisplayMessageRecord”>
<message_id>1234</message_id>
<duration_in_minutes>5</duration_in_minutes>
<message type="string">NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!</message>
</record>
38
</create_message_event>
The message event will automatically be sent to all known Messaging client clusters. You
should see the new message appear. If there is an Aux Gateway on the network, it
should receive the message event and return a “received_message_event” (see
“received_message_event” on page 104) response and an
“updated_active_message_event” (see “updated_active_message_event” on page 105).
Note:
The message server cluster will automatically discard messages with the same
message_id, so be sure to use unique message_ids when creating message events.
39
Additionally, if a Simple Metering server cluster is found on the network, the current
usage information will be automatically retrieved and displayed via ZCL reporting.
40
Meter
To create a Metering Device endpoint, go to the Meter tab and click the Enable Meter
check box. This will create a Simple Metering server cluster on a new endpoint on the
simulated device.
You may set the meter to either have a fixed usage value or a linearly increasing value.
41
CHAPTER 2
General Operation
The following section describes the standard initialization, automation, and configuration
features of the gateway.
40
STARTUP SEQUENCE
The following operations are performed in order by the gateway when powered on.
1. Core modules are imported and core objects are initialized. The gateway will then
load the modules and objects specified in the configuration files (see “Global Saved
Files” on page 48). All RPC requests are now registered and available for use. Be
aware that some RPC requests require time to be synchronized and / or the gateway
to be joined to a network and may return errors.
2. If enabled, the gateway synchronizes time with an NTP server (see “Registry” on
page 45). By default, the ESI coordinator and ESI router will enable NTP; however,
the Aux Gateway will try to set its time using the ZCL time client cluster after it has
joined the network.
3. The gateway waits for its XBee radio to report that it is joined to a network. Until the
radio reports that it is joined to a network, all outgoing ZigBee messages will return an
error.
4. The gateway is fully operational.
41
REMOTE DEVICE MANAGEMENT
Device Detection
A remote device is detected when one of the following happens:
•
•
A ZigBee message is received by the gateway from that device.
A ZigBee message is successfully sent to that device from the gateway.
If the remote device is in the list of registered devices, or if the gateway is in open joining
mode (see “Explicit Device Add and Open Join” on page 43), ZDO queries will be sent to
the remote device in the following order:
•
A Match Descriptor request for the SE key establishment cluster server (0x0800)
and Basic cluster (0x0000). This will update the known network address of the
remote device. A device which responds to at least this request will be considered
active.
•
•
•
A Node Descriptor request.
A Power Descriptor request.
An Active Endpoints request.
For each endpoint returned by the Active Endpoints request, a Simple Descriptor request
will also be sent to find all server and client clusters on the endpoint. Any server clusters
on the gateway will be notified of matching client clusters on the remote device, and
likewise, any client clusters on the gateway will be notified of matching server clusters on
the remote device.
SE Client Clusters and Active Devices
If an SE client cluster on the gateway is notified of a server cluster, that server cluster will
be added to the list of known SE server clusters for that particular SE client cluster. The
client cluster uses this list to request the currently active events from the server(s).
SE Server Clusters and Active Devices
If an SE server cluster on the gateway is notified of a client cluster, that client cluster will
be added to the list of known SE client clusters for that particular SE server cluster. The
server cluster uses this list to unicast certain SE commands to all clients.
SE events stored by the gateway’s server cluster not yet received by a device will be
sent automatically when a device becomes active. If the client also requests events from
the server, these events may be sent to the client twice. However, the gateway will not
consider this case to be an error.
42
Transmission Retries and Device Inactivity
A remote device is considered inactive if a certain number of sequential transmissions to
that device fail (see “ZDO_Device_Manager.max_sequential_TX_failures” on page 46).
When a remote device is marked as inactive, clusters on the gateway will be informed
that any matching clusters on the remote device are no longer available.
SE Server Clusters and Inactive Devices
If an SE server cluster on the gateway is notified that a client cluster has been removed,
that client cluster will be removed from the list of known SE client clusters for that
particular SE server cluster. Events which are missed by the remote device while it is
inactive will be sent when that device becomes active again.
Periodic Refresh
In order to keep network information up to date, refresh messages are sent periodically
(see “ZDO_Device_Manager.refresh_rate” on page 46). These are in the form of Match
Descriptor broadcast requests for the SE Key Establishment cluster server (0x0800).
Devices which do not respond within the timeout period will be considered to have a
transmission failure (see “Conversation.TX_status_timeout” on page 45).
In this manner, active devices which have dropped off the network or otherwise become
unable to receive transmissions (interference, power loss, etc), will be marked as
inactive even if no user-initiated communication to that device has taken place. Devices
currently marked as inactive will be marked as active if they respond to the broadcast.
Explicit Device Add and Open Join
The gateway can be in either open join or explicit device add mode. When in open join
mode, any device can become active. Devices that become active will be added to the
list of known devices (see “Device Detection” on page 42). When in explicit device add
mode, only devices which have previously been added as known devices can become
active. In either mode, devices can be added to the list of known devices by using the
add_device command (see “add_device_response Parameters:” on page 73).
The gateway defaults to open join mode. 
(See “ZDO_Device_Manager.require_explicit_device_add” on page 47.)
43
ZCL Reporting and Device Activity
If ZCL attribute reporting is configured on the gateway to expect reports from an active
remote device, and that device has not sent a report within the configuration’s timeout
setting, the reporting configuration will be resent to the remote device. The remote
device may have had a power loss or other fatal error and so lost its reporting
configuration.
ZCL attribute reports will not be sent to a device which is inactive.
The gateway also supports a simulated reporting mode called “pseudo reporting”.
Pseudo reporting acts like normal ZCL reporting, but instead of sending a Reporting
Configuration to the remote device, the gateway will send periodic reads instead. The
gateway keeps track of previous read values and will send an attribute_report RPC
response (see “attribute_report” on page 83) using the min/max reporting interval and
delta change, as if the remote device had been configured with reporting. This allows
you to use the reporting interface on devices that do not support reporting. The gateway
sends a read to the remote device every Min Reporting Interval. Pseudo reporting is
enabled by setting the pseudo_reporting tag to TRUE in the start_receiving_reports RPC
request (see “start_receiving_reports” on page 82).
44
REGISTRY
The registry is created when the gateway first boots and contains power-safe global
settings to control gateway behavior. Individual entries can be accessed and modified
through the registry_configuration RPC request. A help RPC request can be used to
retrieve the entire registry. If necessary, manually editing registry_settings.ini and
rebooting is possible but not recommended.
Settings and Defaults
Registry Setting
Default
Description
Conversation.default_timeout
40

250
Up to this many outgoing RPC
responses will be stored by the
gateway before the oldest
response is discarded.
RPC_Manager.pushed_file_extension
xml
If pushing is enabled, this string
will be used as the file extension
of the pushed file.
RPC_Response
If RPC_Manager.use_push is
TRUE, this string will be used as
the first part of filename for the
pushed file.
RPC_Manager.use_push
FALSE
If TRUE, RPC responses will be
automatically pushed to iDigi.
(See “Automatic Response
Pushing” on page 54.)
RPC_Manager.use_timestamps

FALSE
If TRUE, devices must be explicitly added before they can
become active. If FALSE,
devices can become active without being explicitly added. If not
specified, the gateway will use its
default behavior. (See “Explicit
Device Add and Open Join” on
page 43.)
Cluster.disable_APS_encryption
FALSE
If TRUE, APS encryption checks
for clusters which normally
require encryption will be
ignored. For normal operation,
this should be set to FALSE.
Note that changing this value
may result in the XBee leaving
its current network.
47
POWER SAFETY
Certain information is automatically saved to flash in order to maintain gateway
functionality in case of a power failure.
Global Saved Files
The gateway stores the following files under /WEB/python/ for persistent configuration and startup
behavior. These files can be viewed through iDigi, the web interface, or built in file system commands of
the gateway.
File
Description
registry_settings.ini
Stores the current state of the registry settings for the gateway. (See
“registry_configuration” on page 63.) Each line of the registry file is a single entry and is
formatted as follows where type is int, bool, or str.
Format:
registry_name [type registry_value]
If a type and registry_value are not given then the registry entry exists but has no value.
Sample:
devices.ini
Stores the 64-bit extended address of all known devices. Any device added via the
add_device RPC request will be added to this file. If the gateway is in open joining
mode, any new devices which become active will also be added to this file. Devices will
only be removed from this file via the remove_device RPC request.
Note:
modules.ini
Cluster.disable_APS_encryption bool False
It is possible to modify this file directly. However, when the gateway is operating
as a trust center, its wireless radio also maintains an internal table of link keys.
Adding a device to devices.ini directly does not update the wireless radio's
internal table and the new device may not be able to join. The add_device and
remove_device RPC requests update the internal table and are the preferred
interface to devices.ini.
Specifies additional modules to be imported on startup. (See “add_module” on page 64
and “remove_module” on page 64.)
Sample:
RPC_ZCL_Interface
RPC_SE_Interface
This sample will import the modules RPC_ZCL_Interface.pyc and
RPC_SE_Interface.pyc on startup.
interfaces.ini
Specifies additional interface classes to be instantiated on startup. (See “add_interface”
on page 65 and “remove_interface” on page 65.)
Sample:
RPC_ZCL_Interface
RPC_SE_Interface
This will instantiate the classes RPC_ZCL_Interface and RPC_SE_Interface on startup.
48
File
endpoints.ini
Description
Specifies additional endpoints to be instantiated on startup. Optional parameters default
to the class definition. (See “add_endpoint” on page 66 and “remove_endpoint” on
page 67.)
Format:
endpoint_class_name endpoint_id [profile_id [device_id
[device_version]]]
Sample:
SE_EnergyServicePortal 0x5E
This will instantiate an Energy Service Portal on endpoint 0x5E on startup.
clusters.ini
Specifies additional clusters to be instantiated on startup for a given endpoint. Optional
parameters default to the class definition. (See “add_cluster” on page 67 and
“remove_cluster” on page 68.)
Format:
cluster_class_name endpoint_id [server_or_client [cluster_id
[enable_APS_encryption]]]
Sample:
ZCL_Cluster 0x5E 1 0x0200
This will instantiate a generic ZCL Cluster object on endpoint 0x5E as a server with
cluster ID 0x0200.
Hidden Saved Files
Aliases and certain cluster specific information are stored in subdirectories under /WEB/python/. These
files are not accessible through the web interface, not intended to be human-readable, and are frequently
created and removed as needed during normal operation.
Type
Description
RPC aliases
Any RPC aliases which have been added will be saved. (See “Aliases” on
page 60.)
SE Events 
(SE server clusters only)
Valid SE events are saved on the server. Only the event itself is saved, incidental information such as what devices have received a particular event are
not saved. When events terminate their files are removed.
ZCL Reporting
Configurations
When the gateway is expecting reports it will save the reporting configuration
to a file. The file will be removed when reports are stopped.
Power-safe ZCL Attributes
When ZCL attributes are created they can be declared as power-safe.
Power-safe attributes are saved to file when written to a non default value. All
SE cluster attributes are declared power-safe.
49
CHAPTER 3
Communication Protocol
The following section explains the basics of communicating with the gateway when it is
running the SE framework. An API reference for all RPC requests and responses can be
found in “Appendix A” on page 63.
BASIC COMMUNICATION OVERVIEW
The gateway communicates via XML encoded RPC requests and responses. These
messages are sent within an RCI wrapper that specifies the RPC target. Typically
requests and responses will also be routed through iDigi which specifies a further SCI
wrapper. Each request can specify whether it should block until a response is ready or
asynchronously return the response. By default, the gateway operates in a polled mode
where asynchronous responses are cached locally and must be explicitly requested. The
gateway can also be configured to push asynchronous responses to the iDigi servers as
they are generated.
In order to communicate with the gateway, XML requests must be generated along with
RCI/SCI wrappers to address the correct device. It is outside the scope of this document
to cover methods for generating and parsing XML, sending requests to the gateway, or
communicating with the iDigi server from within a custom application. The “iDigi SE Web
Sample, Communicating with Gateway” on page 24 can be used to communicate with
the gateway through iDigi.
50
RPC Request and Response Example
RPC requests and responses are contained in an RCI wrapper, which specifies the
command target (i.e. “RPC_request”). This RCI wrapper is contained in an SCI wrapper,
which specifies devices to which the commands will be sent. Here is an example to send
a synchronous get_time request and an asynchronous get_version request to two
gateways:
<sci_request version=”1.0”>
<send_message>
<targets>
<device id=”00000000-00000000-001122FF-FF334455”/>
<device id=”00000000-00000000-001122FF-FF334456”/>
</targets>
<rci_request version=”1.1”>
<do_command target=”RPC_request”>
<get_version />
<get_time synchronous=”TRUE” />
</do_command>
</rci_request>
</send_message>
</sci_request>
51
The responses from multiple devices will be accumulated into a single SCI response by
iDigi. The reply to the above example would look like the following:
<sci_reply version=”1.0”>
<send_message>
<device id=”00000000-00000000-001122FF-FF334455”/>
<rci_reply version=”1.1”>
<do_command>
<get_time_response timestamp="1234567888.0"/>
<UTC_2000>0x133FDDDD<UTC_2000><UTC_1970>0x4BAD215D<UTC_1970>
</get_time_response>
</do_command>
</rci_reply></device>
<device id=”00000000-00000000-001122FF-FF334456”/>
<rci_reply version=”1.1”>
<do_command>
<get_time_response timestamp="1234567888.0"/>
<UTC_2000>0x133FDDDD<UTC_2000><UTC_1970>0x4BAD215D<UTC_1970>
</get_time_response>
</do_command>
</rci_reply></device>
To retrieve asynchronous response messages from the gateway, send to the
“RPC_response” target. Leaving off the SCI wrapper, the RCI wrapper and command
looks like the following:
<rci_request version=”1.1”>
<do_command target=”RPC_response”>
<get_responses />
</do_command>
</rci_request>
A limit can be set on the number of responses returned by specifying the "limit" attribute.
Responses will be returned starting with the oldest.
<rci_request version=”1.1”>
<do_command target=”RPC_response”>
<get_responses limit=”10”/>
</do_command>
</rci_request>
52
The reply to an RPC_response request contains a listing of RPC responses in chronological order. By
default timestamps are enabled and every response will indicate when it was generated. The top level
“responses” tag will also indicate how many response messages remain in the gateway’s buffer. For
example:
<rci_reply version=”1.1”>
<do_command>
<responses remaining=”0” timestamp=”1234567890.0”>
<message timestamp=”1234567888.0”>
<description type=”string”>You must bring us another shrubbery.</description>
<severity>0x1</severity>
</message>
<get_version_response timestamp=”1234567889.0”>
<version type="string">1.3.0</version>
<version_extended type="dict">
<SE_spec_version type="string">1.0 revision 15</SE_spec_version>
<description type="string">SE Framework with support for ESI and IPD
functionality.</description>
</version_extended>
</get_version_response>
</responses>
</do_command>
</rci_reply>
53
Automatic Response Pushing
The gateway can be configured to push responses immediately to the iDigi server
instead of the default polling mode via RPC_response. (See “RPC_Manager.use_push”
on page 46.) Memory on the gateway is limited and it can be advantageous to store
responses on the iDigi server to avoid the risk of dropping messages if too many
responses are generated.
Note:
Response messages will not be removed from the gateway’s buffer until they have been
successfully pushed to the iDigi server. Responses can still be retrieved via RPC_response if
pushing does not succeed for any reason.
File Format
Each pushed file contains a single response without any RCI or SCI wrapper.
<message>
<description type="string">
You must bring us another shrubbery.
</description>
<severity>0x1</severity>
</message>
The filename is formatted with the following information; pushed file prefix (defaults to
RPC_response), timestamp, sequence number, response type, and file extension
(defaults to xml). The sequence number differentiates responses pushed in the same
second.
RPC_response-1234567890-0000-message.xml
RPC_response-1234567890-0001-get_version_response.xml
RPC_response-1234567890-0002-get_device_information_response.xml
RPC_response-1234567891-0000-message.xml
54
XML RPC INTERFACE OVERVIEW
Conversion to Method Call
XML RPC requests convert into method calls on the gateway in a straightforward
manner.
Example 

An XML RPC request like this:
<request_name>
<param1>value1</param1>
<param2>value2</param2>
<param3>value3</param3>
</request_name>
Will result in an method call like this:
request_name(param1 = value1, param2 = value2, param3 = value3)
XML RPC responses similarly specify the name of the response and have a collection of
parameters.
Example 

An XML RPC response might look like this:
<response_name>
<param1>value1</param1>
<param2>value2</param2>
<param3>value3</param3>
</response_name>
55
Parameter Type Specification Overview
The type of a parameter is specified by the attribute “type” within the tag.
Example 

param1 is specified as being of type string:
<param1 type=”string”>My favorite color is blue.</param1>
If no type is specified, the value will be converted to a bool, int or float, in that order.
Example
<param1>TRUE</param1>
param1 is a bool
<param1>1</param1>
param1 is an int
<param1>1.0</param1>
param1 is a float
For responses, type will always be specified.
56
Simple Parameter Types
int
example:
<param type=”int”>42</param>
<param type="int">0xFF</param>
float
example:
<param type=”float”>3.14159</param>
bool
Takes “TRUE” or “FALSE”, case insensitive.
example:
<param type=”bool”>TRUE</param>
string
A character string.
example:
<param type=”string”>Tis but a scratch.</param>
MAC
Intended for use with long address strings, which commonly contain delimiter characters.
example:
<param type=”MAC”>00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77</param>
base16
A base 16-encoded binary string.
example:
<param type=”base16”>1234567890ABCDEF</param>
base64
A base 64-encoded binary string.
example:
<param type=”base64”>3q2+78r+</param>
none
Used to provide a parameter but with no type or value. Some requests may differentiate between a missing parameter and a none parameter. Unlike other parameters, do
not include the "type" attribute or value.
example:
<param/>
57
Complex Parameter Types
list
A list of subparameters. Note that because a list is an anonymous data structure, the tag
names of subparameters are ignored.
example:
<param type=”list”>
<item>42</item>
<item>FALSE</item>
<item type=”string”>Camelot!</item>
</param>
would generate:
param=[42, False, “Camelot!”]
dict
A dictionary of subparameters. The tag names of the subparameters will become the keys of
the dictionary.
example:
<param type=”dict”>
<first>1</first>
<second>TRUE</second>
<third type=”string”>It’s only a model.</third>
</param>
would generate:
param={“first” : 1, “second” : True, “third” : “It’s only a
model.”}
58
record
A record object with specific subparameters. The subparameters will be passed to the
record object’s constructor according to tag name. (See “Record Reference” on page 116.)
example:
<param type=”MagicRecord”>
<foo>9000</foo>
<bar type=”string”>You must bring us...</bar>
<a_shrubbery type=”bool”>TRUE</a_shrubbery>
</param>
would generate:
param=MagicRecord(foo = 9000, bar = “You must bring us...”,
a_shrubbery = TRUE)
xml
A way to specify that the enclosed XML is to be preserved as XML and not parsed into
types. The XML will be passed into the function as an ElementTree (a Python object that
can parse and represent XML).
example:
<param type=”xml”>
<dead>
<parrot>This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life,
it rests in peace!</parrot>
</dead>
</param>
would generate:
param=ElementTree.parsestring(“””<root><dead><parrot>This is a
late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in
peace!</parrot></dead></root>”””)
59
Aliases
XML RPC requests can be abstracted using aliases. To use an alias which has been
defined, use the “alias” type. Alias replacements are performed in place.
Example 

If there was an alias named “EXAMPLE_ALIAS” 
defined with the following XML content:
<param1>value</param1>
<param2>value</param2>
<param3>value</param3>
The following XML:
<request_name>
<EXAMPLE_ALIAS type=”alias” / >
</request_name>
Would then become:
<request_name>
<param1>value</param1>
<param2>value</param2>
<param3>value</param3>
</request_name>
The main value of aliasing is in generalizing parameters to commands which are sent to
a large number of devices.
Example 

If there are two gateways with the alias “THERMOSTAT” defined:
Gateway 1:
<destination_address type=”MAC”>00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77
</destination_address>
Gateway 2:
<destination_address type=”MAC”>00:11:22:33:44:AA:BB:CC
</destination_address>
60
The request that needs to be performed has the following structure:
<request_name>
<destination_address>value</destination_address>
<param1>value</param1>
<param2>value</param2>
</request_name>
Ordinarily a different request would be sent to each gateway, since the thermostat
addresses on the two networks are different. However, since a THERMOSTAT alias is
defined on each gateway for its local thermostat, the same request can be sent to both.
<request_name>
<THERMOSTAT type=”alias”>
<param1>value</param1>
<param2>value</param2>
</request_name>
To manage aliases defined on the gateway, use the add_alias, remove_alias, and
list_aliases RPC requests. (See “add_alias” on page 114, “remove_alias” on page 114
and “list_aliases” on page 115.)
Request Identifier
All RPC requests take an optional request_identifier parameter which can be used to
match requests with later responses. The request identifier can be of any simple type but
typically is an integer.
Broadcasts
RPC requests that specify a destination address can sometimes send the corresponding
ZigBee command as a broadcast rather than a unicast. For example, the ZCL Identify
command is either unicast to a single device or broadcast to all devices on the network.
To specify a broadcast, set the destination address to 00:00:00:00:00:00:FF:FF.
Synchronous Requests
Any RPC request sent to the gateway can be made synchronous by adding the attribute
synchronous=”TRUE” to the RPC request tag. Synchronous requests block until the
response is generated or a timeout occurs (See the definition entry for
RPC_Manager.synchronous_request_timeout in the Registry on page 45.) The
response is then returned in the RCI Reply instead of being pushed to iDigi or queued in
an asynchronous response buffer. In the case of a timeout, the response will be returned
asynchronously. Only one request can be processed at a time, and the RCI target
61
RPC_request will not be available while a synchronous request is blocking. (For an
example using synchronous requests, see RPC Request and Response Example on
page 51.)

add_module
Adds a module without stopping gateway execution. The module is scanned after it has
been added and any interface, endpoint, cluster, or record classes are immediately
available for use in other interface commands. The module will also be added to
modules.ini so that on startup the module will still be imported.
Note:
The module’s .py, .pyc or .pyo file must first be uploaded to the gateway before it can be added by
this method. A .py file takes significantly more memory then a .pyc or .pyo file. If your gateway is
running low on memory consider precompiling added python modules.

Appendix B
SMART ENERGY CERTIFICATE MANAGEMENT
All devices that operate in a ZigBee Smart Energy network must have a certificate
installed that authenticates the device and allows it to securely join and communicate on
the network. A certificate must be issued by the certificate authority (CA). Each certificate
is tied to the 64-bit extended address of the device.
Currently there are two types of certificates issued by the CA. Production certificates are
intended for use in deployed Smart Energy networks. Only devices which pass stringent
testing and are officially certified may be configured with a production certificate. Test
certificates may also be issued by the CA and are functionally equivalent to production
certificates. However, a device configured with a test certificate will not be able to
securely join and communicate on a production network. Test certificates are useful
during development and test, for example when communicating with prototype devices
that have not yet been certified, but should not be used in an actual deployment.
Certificates on ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy
All ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy gateways are certified and configured by default
with a production certificate, allowing them to create or join production networks out of
the box. During the course of development a test certificate may be installed. The
gateway's original production certificate can be restored at any time by removing the test
certificate.
Certificates on Standalone XBee Modules
Standalone XBee modules, such as the XStick SE, do not implement a specific Smart
Energy device and so cannot be certified directly but only as components in larger
systems. Due to this fact, standalone XBee modules cannot be preconfigured with
production certificates and will not be able to securely communicate with a Smart Energy
gateway out of the box.
In order for the standalone XBee to securely communicate on a Smart Energy network a
test certificate will need to be obtained from a certificate authority and installed.
Additional test certificates may also be necessary for other devices that are configured
with production certificates, such as the ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy.
131
Obtaining Test Certificates
Certicom is the only recognized CA for ZigBee Smart Energy. Certicom provides an
online form to request test certificates at http://www.certicom.com/index.php/
gencertregister. Certificates are linked to a specific 64-bit extended address (EUI) which
must be provided to Certicom. Before requesting test certificates determine the EUI of all
devices which will need test certificates.
Determining EUI of a ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy
The EUI of a Smart Energy gateway may be determined in several ways depending on
available access.
•
•
•
Through the web interface, EUI is displayed as Gateway Address under
Administration -> System Information -> XBee Network.
Through the iDigi portal, go to developer.idigi.com. Once signed in to the
webpage, click on “XBee Networks” under the Management category in the left
pane. Use the Gateway Device ID located on the bottom of the device to look up
the Node Address (aka EUI) of the Gateway in the table.
The RPC interface can be used to retrieve the EUI of the Gateway as well. The
easiest way is to send the get_zigbee_network_status request (see
get_zigbee_network_status on page 78). This request will return the EUI as one
of the parameters in its response.
<get_zigbee_network_status />
Determining EUI of a Standalone XBee Module
The EUI of a standalone XBee module serially attached to your computer can be
obtained in the following ways.
•
Run the In-Premise Display/Meter Simulator sample on page 30 and open the
serial port associated with the XBee. Once opened, the XBee's EUI will be
displayed under XBee Settings.
•
Run X-CTU (see “Resources” on page 7), and open the serial port associated with
the XBee. Once the serial port has been opened and communication established
click the Modem Configuration tab and then the Read button under Modem
Parameters and Firmware. Once all modem parameters are read the high 32-bits
of EUI are listed as SH - Serial Number High and the low 32-bits are listed as SL Serial Number Low, both under the Addressing subfolder.

Installing Certificates
Certificates obtained from Certicom should have the following format where ########
will be a long hexadecimal number for each entry.
CA Public Key: ########
Device Implicit Cert: ########
Device Private Key: ########
Device Public Key: ########
To install certificates onto either the ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy or a standalone
XBee an AT command must be sent to configure the CA Public KEY (ZU), Device Implicit
Cert (ZT), and Device Private Key (ZV).
Installing Certificates on the ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy
Use the xbee_AT RPC request to install a certificate. After installing a certificate the
network should also be reset. Use the following requests as a template and send in order.
1. Configure CA Public Key
<xbee_AT>
<command type="string">ZU</command>
<value type="base16">########</value>
</xbee_AT>
2. Configure Device Implicit Cert
<xbee_AT>
<command type="string">ZT</command>
<value type="base16">########</value>
</xbee_AT>
3. Configure Device Private Key
<xbee_AT>
<command type="string">ZV</command>
<value type="base16">########</value>
</xbee_AT>

4. Write settings to non-volatile flash
<xbee_AT>
<command type="string">WR</command>
</xbee_AT>
5. Reset network
<xbee_AT>
<command type="string">NR</command>
</xbee_AT>
Installing Certificates on a Standalone XBee Module
The easiest method to install a certificate on a Standalone XBee Module is using the InPremise Display/Meter Simulator sample on page 30.
If this is not possible X-CTU may also be used to send the necessary AT commands.
However, X-CTU does not provide direct support for the certificate AT commands. The
command packets must be manually created, entered into the Terminal tab, and sent to
the XBee. (For downloading the X-CTU see “Downloads” on page 7 and for accessing
the XBee SE Manual see “Online Documentation” on page 7.)
Reverting/Unininstalling Certificates
Certificates may be removed from either the ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy or a
standalone XBee. Follow instructions in the appropriate section for installing a certificate
except with a value of 0 for the ZU (CA Public Key), ZV (Device Implicit Cert), and ZT
(Device Private Key) commands.
A ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy will revert to its original production certificate when
this procedure is followed.
Production Certificates and Modifications
The ConnectPort X2 for Smart Energy underwent official testing through National
Technical Systems (NTS) for Smart Energy certification to allow installation of production
certificates. The ZigBee Smart Energy Test Specification and other ZigBee documents
provide a set of guidelines for what hardware and/or software changes may require
recertification. When making any modifications reference these documents and
determine if recertification may be required. Digi International may be able to provide
support for recertification. Contact your Sales Representative for more details.
