UK Z-Wave Repeater

I just bought some UK PowerNode switches from Vesternet. I was under the impression that as they plug into power sockets they act as Z-Wave repeaters. Unfortunately they don’t seem to do that.

I appreciate I can buy a separate repeater but I would like to avoid that as it doesn’t seem cost efficient. Could someone recommend a good active Z-Wave device for the UK which I can use as a Z-Wave repeater / extender instead?

TKB Plugs (TZ68E) repeat, have a look at Vesternet. The Fibaro modules also repeat I think.

They should repeat, but you may need to do a Z wave repair in order to get your existing devices to use them as repeaters.

It can take a while for all the address tables to get updated, so you might not see efficiency improvements until the next day.
