If you don't mind my asking why did you choose a BeagleBone over a Rasberri Pi or an Arduino? You can pickup an Arduino clone for as little as $10.00 each.
I use a lot of xBees in my applications, but I use Arduino clones for the microcontroller. To me, a BeagleBone or a Pi seems like massive overkill for most applications.

I researched this today. I like it due to not being
Python progs will be nice.
I need a temperature monitoring solution using
I just bought Adafruit's Beagle Bone Black
Starter Pack *** IN STOCK AS OF TONIGHT MAR 24
and some thermocouples and Digital temperature sensors.
I doubt bulk orders will work - BBB in short supply.
I'd love to get in touch with some other local folks
- I need help discussing my Topology for my devices.
Might use 1-wire, with some help from this thread:
I'm also investigating Zigbee/XBee wireless nodes.
More expensive, yes.
An interesting set of tutorials is here:

When I first saw the Raspberry Pi, it was hard
to get excited about it because it lacked the hardware
Not so the BeagleBone! The new
Black is now just $45. Running a complete embedded
Linux at 1GHz with every bit as much hardware interface
capability as the Arduino, I now wish that I had cut my
teeth on this puppy, rather than the Arduino!
Any interest in reviving the Microcontroller
and Robotics group (in Pinellas for me) to poke at these
