Niko Home Control for traditional wiring - What is the maximum wireless range of a Zigbee® device and how can I extend this?
The maximum indoor wireless range of a Zigbee® device is 10 m. Note that this range can vary and depends mainly on three aspects of a building or room:
- The used materials.
- The indoor position of the connected Zigbee® device.
- Sources of interference.
For more information about these three aspects, read the installation chapter of a Zigbee® device.The wireless range can be extended beyond 10 m via the mesh networking capability of a Zigbee® repeater.Only 230V powered Zigbee® products support the mesh networking feature and can extend the wireless range.Energy-harvesting or battery-powered Zigbee® devices, such as the Zigbee® wireless motion detector (552-80401) or battery powered switches (552-720XX), act as end-point devices.
They cannot extend the wireless range and should be positioned maximum 10 meter from a 230V powered Zigbee® device.
