Support for battery-powered devices

By default, a system with a hub can support up to 10 battery-powered devices, such as sensors. Systems that also include mains-powered devices such as light switches can support additional battery-powered devices.

The reason for this is that mains-powered devices in the system also act as system network extenders.

The example system shown in the next diagram includes a hub (A) and two mains-powered light switches (B). Each mains-powered device can host up to 10 battery-powered devices (C), so this example system can support a total of 30 battery-powered devices.

TIP: Install and commission all mains-powered devices before commissioning battery-powered devices. This provides maximum hosting capacity prior to adding the battery-powered devices.
