Poor coverage also with mesh


Recommended Posts

I try to coverage a medium area but the relay and other zwave device don't have good coverage also with mesh network.

I installed HC2 with HCL (master & slave) on many places on house but don't work properly, I think we need a better antenna.

If I colocated the slave on one side of the house some device don't work also a few meter.

The house was built with blocks (20 cms) with rock decoration the wall in some places, tempered glass, and steel girders.

If those are all the devices in the network then there is no mesh network. The sensors do not act as repeaters, only the relay from the picture will act as a repeater.  You will need to add other mains powered z wave devices to actually have a mesh,
