This will boost the wireless signal strength from the Genius Hub to other wireless devices, and because of this stronger communication signal battery life is improved.
Larger properties will need a number of Smart Plugs to give rock solid communication to every corner of the home, the number required is automatically calculated for you in the Create Your System.
They can also be scheduled to turn on and off from the app, you can set them up in your home and use them to turn other things like room lamps on and off. Each Smart Plug strengthens your Genius wireless network improving battery life for the battery powered devices too.
The Smart Plugs give you very reliable communication around the property by using the self-healing mesh network technology. Self-healing allows for the system to recover when power is lost to devices or they are moved. A mesh network allows for redundancy, so even if a device gets damaged, another can act in its place. The more signal boosting devices you add the more it increases battery life by providing easier lines of communication back to the Genius Hub.
The Genius Hub self-healing mesh network does not rely on your WiFi signal it runs on it’s own frequency of 868MHz. Separate from the 2.4GHz and 5GHz mobile and WiFi connections it is more reliable and will not interferer with existing wireless devices in the property.
Alternatively, you can use the Genius Range Extender if you want a hard wired signal booster which cannot be tampered with.
