Re: total newbie - RF capability question
I have a pool house that's about 150 ft away on a separate service. I am able to control the lights there via access points. However, it is occasionally spotty and it's hard to recommend for anything that is "mission critical". I think someone recommended running conduit and electricity from the main house to the outbuilding and putting an access point on that extension with a nearby access point inside the outbuilding. Would likely improve communication.
re the IP cameras, wireless ethernet extenders are readily available although pricy, so it is doable.
