I recently purchased a few thermostatic valves (Eurotronic Spirits) which act as z-wave plus slaves (FLIRS to be exact). One of them doesn’t respond properly to Homey and I think it’s out of range (or at least, there is a lot of stuff between Homey and the valve (walls, furnature, etc). My idea was to put a z-wave routing slave (if that’s the proper term) somewhere halfway. I don’t have any practical use for something at the moment, but I figured I could just put a smart plug in between one of my appliances, which may be something I could use anyway at one point in the future.
I was looking at Fibaro Wall Plug Type F for this purpose or maybe preferably a powerstrip (Stekkerdoos in Dutch) if anyone knows where I can find one.
My question is. Will this functionally work (given that the distance and interference will be acceptable enough)? Can/will/should any z-wave slave able to talk through a routing-slave towards Homey?
