What is the difference between these two devices that are both marketed as “range extenders” by essentially the same company? Although I have not yet been able to find a definitive answer, despite a fair amount of Internet searching, I’m getting the impression that the former may be a newer version of the latter. (???) I’ve also noted the former is characterized as “Z-Wave,” whereas the latter is sometimes, but not always, characterized as “Z-Wave Plus.”
I DO understand that any mains-powered Z-Wave device will also act as a Z-Wave repeater/range extender. However, in my circumstance, I want to use a dedicated Z-Wave Plus repeater/range extender.
Both of these devices are currently available on Amazon, as well as other outlets. Both of these devices are mentioned in various blogs as recently as July 2019. However, the Aeon Labs website only lists the latter device.
These two devices seem to be the highest-rated/most-recommended dedicated Z-Wave repeaters/range extenders, but I am open to any/all suggestions for this application.
