I’ve got a couple of ZWave devices that I want to control with my vera2. One is the Aeon Labs door switch, and a GE dimmer light switch. Both devices were detected and added to my setup just fine. My door switch works fine, but it only has a range of 5 feet. If I step an inch outside of 5 feet, it no longer gets signals from my door switch. My dimmer light just has an error message “Unable to get any information on”. So I assume it’s also out of range and is unable to communicate with the vera2.
I read online and they say that the range should be roughly 90 feet as long as conditions are reasonable. My failed 5+ ft. test was in the same room with a direct line of sight between the vera2 and the door switch. The dimmer switch is downstairs, about 40 ft away.
Does anyone have any suggestions for debugging this problem? Do I have to add ZWave devices everywhere to act as repeaters in the mesh network?
