Lots of repeater nodes



  • Is there any reason not to code every (mains powered) node on my network as a repeater?

    I imagine that this would maximise the possibility of a message making it to the gateway, but wanted to check there aren't any downsides to that approach!



  • I was doing that once but in my case it was not the best solution.

    I have some nodes on battery and so they don't ask for ack.

    I would need confirmation but I think that if my repeater is not reliable (far from gateway or somewhere with bad reception) It could add some loss on the communications from final node to gateway.

    I try so to test different place using this: https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/3984/nrf24l01-connection-quality-meter to place strategically my repeater.
