I am new to Zigbee and i am plan to use the MC13193. My question is, does it need to have a line of sight between the coordinator, and end devices? Does the end devices need to have a line of sight with the router/ coordinator?
Also, does using the antenna strip, particularly the F-antenna (embedded in the PCB) give a reliable signal or i will need to have an externa antenna, especially the place has many obstacles? What is the range of the F-antenna (embedded in the PCB). Does it have to be line of sight?
ANy suggestion would be a great help.
