Tips for staying connected
Make sure that your Homely Hub and Homely Temperature Node are less than 16 meters apart.
As with any wireless connection, the thickness of internal walls and the presence of large, heavy items of furniture can hamper connectivity. If you think that could be an issue then consider moving the Homely Temperature Node to an alternative spot within the home.
