(Please tell me where this might have been better categorized, as I am new and I mean no harm.)
I have two CentraLite 4256050-ZHAC modules, one in the living room controlling a fan, and one in the bedroom controlling the bedside light. (I know now that I should have bought SmartThings switches-- to support the cause and all-- but was buying off eBay, where I have a “charge account” and didn’t see any at the time.)
The one in the living room is right next to the hub, and it works perfectly.
The one in the bedroom is about thirty feet away from the hub and seems to behave fine, but…
When the light is turned off, after a ten to fifteen minute delay, it begins to flash rapidly, which annoys my wife to no end.
We have swapped the two switches only to have the same behavior. Could this be a distance issue? I rather thought there was more range than that. There is no metal between the two other than what is in mobile home interior walls.
If it is distance, would a repeater help? I would have already tested that out myself, but I don’t want to give up control over the fan, even temporarily, as I am disabled and I don’t like to ask my wife to constantly come turn it on and off. To me, the price of the system is recouped on just that one use, but I could have just gotten a fan with a remote for about half the price-- the search for one is what lead me to buying SmartThings in the first place, by the way, albeit somewhat indirectly.
Oh, and what is the normal range of such devices?
Any answers/advice are greatly appreciated!
