I have a smartthings hub in my house. I would like to add some devices in my detached garage. Unfortunately my garage is about 130’ feet away. I have a small barn that is about halfway between the garage and house, and put a Aeon SmartSwitch Z-Wave Plus plug in the barn, but it is won’t connect, even though I have another Z-Wave Plus switch in the house closest to the barn.
I have Ethernet run out to the garage. Can I connect another hub in the garage as a slave to the Smartthings hub in the house in order to control some devices in the garage with the hub in the house?
I want the switches (and routines/apps) in the house to be able to control the lights in the garage.
I saw this which makes me think it can be done, but not sure if I understand it correctly or if it actually works. I’m hoping the hubs can communicate via Ethernet instead of having to communicate via Z-Wave.
