Homey antenna mod


Well, that’s not what he says, is it? He says that the range is equal or even better out of the box. So if others can have that range out of the box, why not Athom.


I’m reacting to @Jan_Peeters, not to @danone:

There’s an annoying bug in the forum software that doesn’t always show the comment to which is being referred.


Ah, my bad :relaxed: Sorry.


After reading many good experiences here, I also ordered the needed parts. Hope they”ll arrive soon!


Homey the extreme edition is under construction
Homey will get 3 afterburner soon.
Zigbee, Zwave and Wlan with 1 Watt each.

Say goodbye to repeating and welcome to Homey the beast.

Have a look to the german beast.
homee with double boosting in full power mode.


You sir, are scaring me :hushed:


:+1: :shushing_face::joy::joy:


Love it!


Is that’s an amplifier I sure hope your neighbors don’t live close by!
And if they do: let’s hope they don’t use zwave/zigbee :rofl:


So you are building a Death Star. Nice. Also like how your Homey looks like it’s in The Matrix with all these connectors popping out on all sides. Okay. Enough movie references for the day…


Uncle undertakers craft hour

Say hello to the dark side of power.

Base: Aeotec Repeater zwave

Dont do this at home :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:


I am currently imagining an evil doctor screaming; ITS ALIVE, ITS ALIIIIIIIVE!


Welcome to Germany.
My wife already asks me if I want to contact the ISS. :sunglasses::sunglasses:


Oh, but that’s easy @Undertaker just look when it passes above you (about every 91 minutes I think) and flash a torch.

Now serious, have you tried the LNA amplifier on z-wave with Homey??


At the weekend I will test extensively


Thanks, look forward to hear from you!

I had nothing to spend money on, so I’ve ordered one amplifier from Amazon. As well as a high gain antenna, this has to stay away from Homey as it weights alone almost 1kg :grin:
Just want to test it.
As far as I know, there are no neighbors using z-wave…


Is there a difference between https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07H5RH3QX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1#detail_bullets_id and https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07F1XGQZY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


The death star is alive!
It’s fucking work!

Let me test this a view days.


I can hear you loud and clear. Hell, ISS should hear you loud and clear. Nice!
