Bluelab Connect Range Extender Questions & Answers
How far apart can my connect stick and connect device be?
The line-of-sight distance between a connect stick and the connect device (ie Guardian Monitor Connect or Connect Range Extender) should be:
Bluelab recommend positioning your Connect Range Extender and the Guardian Monitor Connect as high off the ground as possible, 6ft / 1.8M is the optimum height.
Why does my signal strength change when the devices are in a fixed location?
Radio frequency transmissions are very sensitive to the environment so many factors can affect how strong the signal is. This includes wind, rain, moving objects and interference from electrical devices such as microwaves or motors and pumps.
Why does my signal strength take a while to update if I move a device?
The software only checks the signal strength at each device at 1 minute intervals, so any changes will not be detected until the next time a check is run.
