That may be enough to work I’m thinking. I have a sensor about 50 feet away from our house in our mailbox that I have no issue with. There is a light switch installed right next to the front door, but on the inside.
I had a similar situation where my mailbox was about 60 ft from the house. I bought a outside plug and with the mesh netwoork it works great. Used the plug for Christmas lightand Halloween decorations.
Very, very Cool Miamijerry. I’m going to have to try that. Another bullet proof way is to do Point to Point wireless internet connections. On one side you would have a veraedge (master) then at the outlaying building you would have another veraedge (slave). Bridge the veras over the LAN and you’ll be good to go. We would use like a Ubiquiti NanoStations for the point to point. Going to set you back a about $200 including the extra vera but its a very solid solution.
Your right, looking back at the forums we found this out December 19, 2014 in a middle of a job…bummer. I was told at CES that it was finally fixed but I just confirmed it’s not, double bummer. A work around is to hard code the commands. A lot of work if you have a lot of veras but if you just have one its fairly easy. Just depends what you are trying to do at the well house. Here’s an SOP I put together when we were working on big jobs so you can see the work flow
SOP FOR ADDING NETWORK WIDE SCENES
This is for a spread sheet
STEP 1: Come up with network wide name that will be consitant accross every Vera Unit used in Scene (example: ALL ON, PARTY MODE OFF)
STEP 2: Determine what Locations will be used in Scene and Hi-Light in Green (for unused Veras Hi-Light in Red)
STEP 3: Log into each Vera individually and create a new scene. Program the Macros that need to be carried out by that vera. Follow naming scheme and name appropriately. Put scene in appropriate room
STEP 4: After saving, vera will give scene an ID number. Document ID number
STEP 5: Follow steps 3 and 4 with all Vera Locations that scene is dependent on.
STEP 6: Once completed log into Main House Controller and open working scene. Edit LUUP CODE adding commands to send scene associated veras (look below for examples). Look at scene numbers/ IP address for faster coding.
STEP 7: Mark interfaces that scene will be availible on. (scene controller, tablets, computers, custom UI)
Here is an example of 9 veras working together for one scene to turn off a decent size property.
