Ideas to connect detached garage (Out of range of main hub)


(Sachin Saraswat) #1

Hi, just wanted to check on ways to connect my detached garage with the smartthings hub? The garage is out of range of main hub and unfortunately there is no internet connection there. Looks like I am out of luck for automating the garage but just giving it a shot in case someone was in my situation and found a way out :smile:
Thanks
Sachin

This topic might give you some ideas, but basically you’re going to have to have something mains powered within 100 feet of the building. Then it has to be within 100 feet clear of something mains powered in the house.

Once you’re indoors, range per hop will drop to 30 - 50 feet, just depending .
