My Vera lite is 90' from my Kwikset lock
« on: January 12, 2013, 03:46:44 pm »
I can only control the lock when it's within a few feet of the Vera Lite.  However my front door is 3 floors and about 90' from the VL.  In this location I can control the Lock anymore, any suggestions.

Thanks

You need other zwave nodes between the door and Vera, and at least one device near the lock that supports beaming/hail!

If you have this, then you perhaps you just need to perform a heal!?

I have nothing in between the two.  I've just purchased a lamp module and range extender from lowes (Iris/GE-Z-wave) will this work?  Also what do you mean by perform a "heal" sorry I'm a newbie :-)

Most likely you won't be able to control the lock reliably unless you have some intermediate nodes to create a mesh. Try it out anyway.

Thanks that was helpful.  Any suggestions on what type of device I should use and their spacing?
