Common Area Access Panel Connection to Hub
Once the common area access panel has successfully passed the wiring installation test, you can connect the hub. Simply plug in the hub.
The common area access panel communicates by BlueTooth, not Z-wave, so it cannot traditionally pair to a hub. Instead, the access panel scans for the closest hub and will automatically connect.
The ideal placement of the hub would be 15 feet from the panel. Note the following for the best connectivity:
- Without any obstructions and direct line of sight, the hub and access panel should be able to establish a connection within 30 feet.
- With walls and any non-metallic obstruct around either of the antennas, the hub ideally should be located 15 feet or less.
- With some metallic obstruct around the hub and antenna, this will significantly lower the distance for a good connection.
