Schlage Lock out of range?

range
#1

I have Schlage zwave doorlocks about 20m from my hub. I added them by bringing the hub close but when it’s in it’s usual spot it doesn’t see them. I added a Samsung outlet just a few feet from one of the locks, and the hub sees it fine. I tried “repairing” the network several times but locks still don’t connect. Does s single outlet not provide enough “juice” to extend the network? Other ideas. I have 8 locks closer to the hub that connect great, so no issues with connecting when in range.

If you added SmartThings outlet, that uses Zigbee and won’t extend your Z-Wave network. You’ll want to add a Z-Wave outlet to help with that.

Oh duh. I thought the Z part of the zigbee logo was for Zwave (that it was both). Rookie mistake. Thank you!
