Hi Xbee gurus,
I am hoping that people here will be able to advise me if Xbee is a solution to a potential problem.
I have a few items on there way from china including Xiaomi door sensors, Xiaomi Aqara Temp/Humidity sensors and Gledopto soposh light bulbs. My potential problem is, alot of this gear will be going in a part of the house that I'm not confident that it will communicate well with the HE. I only have one Zigbee switch in between the HE and planned location. The switch has also been reported to not route well. My plan is to build a Xbee router and place it central to the area with these new devices. The distance from the Xbee to the sensors and lightbulbs would be about 3 meters going through a one brick wall. Distance from the HE to the Xbee would be about 8 meters going around 1 corner. Direct from Xbee to HE would be a couple meters less but have to go through 2 brick walls.
Could anyone advise me if you think this setup would potentially work? I have also red in this forum that when using Xbee with Xiaomi you need a non A version of the xbee. Is this still true?
