Post total newbie - RF capability question
Hi, as the title says- I have no prior experience w/ home automation. My particular issue is that my garage is about 100ft from back of house and on a separate electrical service. I want to be able to monitor/control three separate garage doors as well as some of the lights. Security cameras might be considered as well. Is this doable w/an Access point module and appropriate controller/sensors?

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.
