    If you're building a ZIGBEE or any other wireless network at 2.4Ghz, a major consideration is throughput of data and integrity of the wireless link.

    It's a good idea to use a spectrum analyser to ensure that your locality is clear of potential killer interference such as baby monitoring devices, leaky microwave ovens, wireless video cameras and wireless alarm modules, all of which can cripple Zigbee or 802.11 network performance.

    Take a look at www.wi-spy.co.uk

    Here is a little video that explains the project range.

    For home users there is a low cost option: http://www.crownhill.co.uk/product.php?prod=2139

    Seriously worth the money, even we cleared up a rogue 2.4Ghz signal radiating intermittently across the band, without wi-spy we'd probably never have found it......even though we have a 30K GBP Agilent spectrum analyser sitting in the workshop, wi-spy is just so convenient.
