2x Xbee Series 1 with 1x Uno and 1x Mega

Hi guys. I'm very new to arduino and xbee series 1. the main objective of my project is to able to control the lighting system from point A to point B using Xbee to transmit and receive. Right now i'm able to control the lighting from Xbee_A 'COM' by typing '1' as LED ON and '2' as LED OFF to the xbee_B. Furthermore, i would like to improvise the system by transferring data of the temperature values from point B back to point A. But i'm clueless on how to do that. Even after researching for days, i have no idea at all.

Xbee_A connected to shielding(https://www.cooking-hacks.com/communica ... xb-bt-rfid) to Arduino UNO
-jumper wire of DIN to pin 4, and DOUT to pin3

Xbee_B connection to shielding(https://www.cooking-hacks.com/communica ... xb-bt-rfid) to Arduino Mega
no jumper connection

TX CODE

Code: Select all

 #include<SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial xbee(2,3);
char word1="";

void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
  Serial.begin(9600);
  xbee.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
  if(Serial.available()>0)//if key in something in COM
  {
    word1=Serial.read();//words equal what ou type
    xbee.println(word1);//xbee print out words
    Serial.print(word1);//
  }
  word1="";
RX CODE

Code: Select all

#include <dht.h>
#define DHT22_PIN A8 
int LED=13;
char letter;
dht DHT; //DHT 22 

float hum;  //Stores humidity value
float temp; //Stores temperature value

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(13,OUTPUT);

}
void loop(){
  if(Serial.available()==0){
int chk = DHT.read22(DHT22_PIN);
  hum = DHT.humidity;
  temp= DHT.temperature;
    Serial.print("Humidity: ");
  Serial.print(hum);
  Serial.print(" %, Temp: ");
  Serial.print(temp);
  Serial.println(" Celsius");
  }
if(Serial.available() >0)
{
  letter = Serial.read();
  if(letter == '1')
  {
    //50% brightness manually from control station
    digitalWrite(LED, HIGH);
    
  }
  if (letter=='2')
  {
    digitalWrite(LED,LOW);
  }
}
}
Any kind soul able to help me out with this? I would really grateful if anyone can help me out.
