To give a high level overview of my scenario, I have a ranch house. In my basement, I have a full cinder block wall running down the middle of the house in basement. The ST hub sits on the main level on 1 side of the wall. About 40 feet away is a kwikset lock that won’t work with hub. I’m thinking it’s because of that cinder block wall blocking the signal.
I thought I read in the past that deadbolts send encrypted messages and light switches and power outlets won’t relay the signal. Is there any truth to that?
I guess my question is, what’s the easiest way to get that deadbolt working? Install power outlets and light switches to extend the network? Or just get another hub down in the basement?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
