Wireless Guidelines


In typical building conditions, where there are no obstructions causing screening, EnOcean devices will normally interoperate at a range of 30m line of sight (LoS).

Typically, in a building, there are a number of factors, which can reduce this LoS range further.


Material reduction vs. LoS

Range

Wood, Drywall, Glass (uncoated with no metal)

0-10%

Brick, Plaster Board

5-35%

Metal, Concrete, Mirrors

10-90%


Furthermore, the angle at which radio waves penetrate obstructions also has a greater or lesser effect on signal quality. Where an obstacle to transmission is present, the signal should propagate perpendicular to the obstruction for best results.
