Lightwave devices use a low radio frequency band which enables them to achieve best-in-market range performance, this significantly outperforms widely used protocols such as ZigBee, WiFi and Bluetooth. In an open field setting, we have completed successful tests of up to 1km. In a typical household environment, this translates to approximately 100m of range. To optimise the range of your LightwaveRF devices, we recommend installing the hub in a high and central location within your property. It's worth mentioning that elements like expansive water bodies, metallic surfaces, and specific materials can occasionally affect the device's range.
Try to make sure that large metal objects such as radiators or water tanks are not placed in the path of the wireless signal. Situating the link as high up as possible within the building (i.e. top floor) also helps to improve the range.
Also note that Connect Series relays and power sockets require a minimum separation distance of 30cm, and they should not be situated in metal casings that could interfere with transmissions.
For larger areas requiring greater coverage 2 Links (Connect Series) can be used in combination to extend wireless range. More than one link plus can now be added to the link plus app - this can be done under locations click here to find out how to do this
