There are several serial-to-ZigBee modules out on the market; haven't used any of them myself, but they exist and a few articles have been written on the subject in recent issues of Circuit Cellar.  Sorry I can't point you at any this instant; I'm in San Jose all this week on business.

...Do a search for "ZigBee" at http://www.mouser.com/ and browse the results for some ideas.

I'm not shure if there is a zigbee stack for arm.
For the microchip there is - have 4 boards right next to me.
It would be great to a piggy pack board for the gum.
But I prefer an ehternet connection for the gum.

Subject: Re: [Gumstix-users] Gumstix with Zigbee networking..

Having both bluetooth and zigbee running simultaneously on a Gumstix could be interesting - for example, using the gumstix as a zigbee-based home automation controller. A device scheduling gui app on a pc could connect to the gumstix to allow users to programme their home schedule, then the gumstix could signal lights/toasters etc via zigbee. I'm sure there are plenty of other scenarios where having a gumstix-based bluetooth <-> zigbee gateway would be useful.

zigbee is kinder to the battery than class 1 bluetooth and comparable in
range... but you won't appreciate much of the difference if the gumstix
board itself is where most of the power consumption is.

of course adding class 1 bluetooth to gumstix is probably an equally
difficult/expensive project, but there are more devices and scenarios it
can be used with.
