What is the maximum transmission distance for control of lights from a remote Bluetooth wall switch?
Bluetooth wall switches use the same wireless technology as the lights. When idle, the switches are powered off to conserve energy. They transmit signals only when pressed.
The BT transmission range is similar to the lights – up to 50 meters (164 ft) indoors. However, for the best user experience, it is recommended to install panels within 20 meters (66 ft) of the nearest controlled lights.
Here are some guidelines on transmission distances:
*Maximum distance between the switch and lights it directly controls: 20 meters (66 ft)
*Farthest distance lights can be from the switch and still receive signals: 200 meters (656 ft)
*Lights beyond 200 meters may not receive switch signals reliably
*The 200 meter total transmission range allows flexibility in lighting layouts. You can control distant lights by placing panels strategically within that radius.
Following these distance recommendations allows reliable communication between the wall switches and lights for the best user experience.
