We are using a radiomodule with CC2530ZNP inside of it. Only way to use and communicate with other wireless devices is to use the module by commands specified in CC2530ZNP Interface specification - so we are using that only.
I have succesfully created the Zigbee network with the coordinator module and it is succesfully joined by ZED, which is set as sleeping device. Everything works fine, except for when the Coordinator is switched off (this will happen at least once a day in our end-application). ZED starts to send beacon request, which should be the correct case and it is, because we can see the packets with the CC2531-USB Dongle and Packet Sniffer PC-Software. Problem is, that we don't want the ZED to send beacon requests so often. Now ZED is sending them for every 1-2 seconds and we would like to change this to a longer period or perhaps totally shut down the beacon request. I wouldn't like to shut down the whole module since it would require a change in PCB, and I don't like to reset the module either.
My question is, that what other possibilities there are in order to have the beacon requests disabled or perhaps delayed? Remember, that we cannot access the radiomodules firmwar so we can only use the interface. When coordinator comes back online and hears a beacon request, network is restored and that's what it should be, but how to handle the period when there is no network present and stay in low-power mode, that is the question?
If anyone have any suggestions how to handle this situation differently, i would be glad to hear them! Thanks in advance!
