NOTE: Z-Wave gateway controller required - sold separately.
Boost your entire Z-Wave mesh network with one tiny add-on. The Aeotec Range Extender & Signal Repeater is a simple plug-in device that lengthens range, improves reliability, and gives your signal strength a boost.
It is equipped with updated Z-Wave Plus Gen 5 technology, which supports Z-Wave explorer frames — a discovery mechanism that reroutes connectivity between individual nodes and reliably repeats Z-Wave messages. This Range Extender is AES-128 encrypted to ensure secure connections. When plugged into an electrical outlet, its sleek and small design prevents it from blocking the second receptacle.
Installing your Range Extender only takes two easy steps: plugging it into an electrical outlet and including it into your Z-Wave network.
To properly connect it to your network, be sure to plug it in somewhere within direct range of your Z-Wave gateway controller. You may relocate it after inclusion is complete. Put your controller into inclusion/pairing mode. Press the Z-Wave Button on the side of the Range Extender. Once successfully included, the LED indicator will light up and stay solid. If inclusion was unsuccessful, the LED will stay solid red for 2 seconds only. In this event, ensure that the device is close enough to your hub and repeat the steps detailed above.
NOTE: If you don't see your Z-Wave controller on the list above, please contact us before you purchase this product.
