Niko Home Control for traditional wiring - What is mesh networking?
Mesh networking is a feature that is supported by 230V Zigbee® devices to receive signals and spreading them out to other connected Zigbee® devices. This way, the wireless distance can be extended beyond 10 m and a robust and reliable wireless communication system can be established.
Only 230V powered Niko Zigbee devices support the mesh networking functionality. Energy-harvesting or battery-powered Zigbee® devices, such as the Zigbee® wireless motion detector (552-80401), do not act as repeating nodes in a Zigbee® network. They only act as receiver nodes and cannot be used to extend the network.
