    Someone here with Zigbee experience could provide me some suggestions on what hardware (modules) to choose?
    I'm looking for something small and easy to use.

    Im thinking on the TI CC2530ZNP Mini Kit once I found many zigbee modules that are based on the CC2530 chip. The Zigbee Processor (ZNP) seems interesting. However I don't know if it is really out-of-the-box or easy to use. And not cheap once I think I'll need to buy more hardware (CC debugger + packet sniffer).
    I'm planning to implement a network with 1 coordinator, 2 routers and 2 end-devices. Something like this:

    Any suggestions are very welcomed.
