I don't work for homeseer or anything. Just letting people know that I found these on the homeseer store and I wanted a few for holiday lights and such so I tried them out.

The first one I enrolled I took to my detached garage and it plugged it in about 100 ft away from the closest zwave device inside my brick house.

Didn't do a heal or anything and it worked on the first try!

These do support beaming and may be a halfway decent repeater.  I didn't really have trouble with my zwave network so I don't know how they'll help, but I know they have great range!

First I've seen "Dragon Tech Z-Wave Plus appliance modules" (PA-100).  I found a few claims this is a house brand for ZwaveProducts.com; ZWP and Amazon have these DragonTech modules at much higher prices, and their listings add a few details:

Biggest claim-to-fame for the 500 chips is improved transmit power (+2.5dBM) and support for all Z-Wave Plus features.

It seems that the dragon tech stuff is who makes the homeseer stuff. They have different firmware I'm sure, but the on/off modules I bought work really well. Not easy to find anything z-wave for $20 let alone the zwave plus features so I thought I'd share.

My concern is that not all Z-Wave devices report/update their status. Do these provide immediate status so as to trigger an program?

Yeah good bang for the buck.

Ok so I took my laptop to where I have one of these plugged in and hit the button and status was updated right away and the program to turn on the other light fired off.  I did it twice and success both times.

 

I'm attaching node details as ISY sees it for anyone curious.

That's a test for "Control." Does the device trigger a program if you turn it on or off remotely as opposed to manually (i.e., Status)?

Well I didn't have any trouble with my zwave mesh, but these things have a lot greater range that what I had before since they are zwave plus.  They do support beaming.

Should be decent for a repeater.  Price of admission isn't all that much to try one.
