FAQ - Common Questions

Mounting/installation

  • Can the wireless range of the system be increased?

    Yes, the Homematic IP radio protocol supports routing functions in mains-powered devices. The routing function can be activated via the Homematic IP smartphone app or the WebUI (user interface). The range extension can currently be used for the following Homematic IP products:

    • Homematic IP Pluggable Switch (HmIP-PS)
    • Homematic IP Pluggable Switch and Meter (HmIP-PSM)
    • Homematic IP Switch Circuit Board (HmIP-PCBS)

    The Homematic IP system is based on the same particularly effective and robust wireless technology which has already proven its success with millions of devices from Homematic, MAX! and RWE Smart Home (innogy) too. This means that range extension is usually not required.
