In most homes and holiday homes ZigBee products and sensors will work just fine without you having to do anything in particular. In some cases it will be necessary to plan better to ensure that the wireless signal is receiving optimum conditions. Concrete, glass or other distracting elements in some cases cause the signal to weaken.
ZigBee uses low frequencies. This technology is the standard for home automation and has good penetration in homes. Without obstacles and interference the scope range for signals is about 8 meters indoors.
ZigBee uses so-called mesh network, where all devices are “talking to” each other, directly to onestiHOMEGATE or through other ZigBee devices to ensure that the signals are getting through.
A ZigBee network will maintain itself and calculate what is the optimal route through other devices and to the centrally positioned onestiHOMEGATE.
There is no need to plan where to activate repetition and no need for planning the position as the network itself figures out what is optimal.
Remember that it pays off to start the installation of components as close as possible to the onestiHOMEGATE, then work you way further and further away to other rooms or other floors in your home.
