How to Increase Smartlock Range
I have a shop about 100 feet from my house and I bought a smartlock for the shop door. However, no matter what I do I cannot get the base station to communicate with the Smartlock. The only things between the base and the smartlock is a window, the metal wall of my shop, and 100 feet of air (so much for an 800 foot range...) I just got my entire Simplisafe system in the mail yesterday and now I am considering returning it all because I want a system that can incorporate my shop.
I have seen videos where people were able to add an antenna to different Simplisafe devices but I haven't found a video showing how to do it specifically for a Smartlock. Has anyone else found one?
Simplisafe, please create some kind of range extender! Now that I am having this problem I am seeing that this is a very common complaint. Build a range extender and we will all buy one.
