The Genius Smart Plug will boost the wireless signal strength from the Genius Hub to other wireless devices, and because of this stronger communication signal battery life is improved.
The Smart Plugs give you very reliable communication around the property by using self-healing mesh network technology. Self-healing allows for the system to recover when power is lost to devices or they are moved. A mesh network allows for redundancy, so even if a device gets damaged, another can act in its place. The more signal-boosting devices you add the more it increases battery life by providing easier lines of communication back to the Genius Hub.
To control this you will require the Genius Hub as the brains. The Genius Hub network does not rely on your WiFi signal it runs on it’s own frequency of 868MHz. As this is separate from the 2.4GHz and 5GHz mobile and WiFi connections. The network is more reliable and will not interfere with existing wireless devices in the property.
