💬 The Sensor Network
So if I understand correctly I could just by default enable the repeater on every non-battery powered node I create? The nodes wil only use a repeater if they can't connect to the gateway directly? Are there any downsides to enabling it, besides using more battery? Will the airwaves be full of repeating shouting nodes, like a speech at an Occupy demonstration, and perhaps disrupt wifi?
In the example sketch for the RepeaterNode it has this info:
- It is important that nodes that has enabled repeater mode calls
- process() frequently. Repeaters should never sleep.
So, is this for older sketches for versions below 2?
Do we need to add something more to the example sketch?
This is done automatically nowadays. I will update the doc.
