Zigbee Range

Need Answer

I have a zipabox with zigbee extension module. I managed to add a Ikea tradfri bulb. Working perfect near the box. But when I move the bulb to a different floor, the bulb does not respond anymore, the connection is lost.

Are there any experiences in the range I can expect with ZIgbee ?

I have only Zwave modul and devices, but in both case is important to build up a stable mesh network. You have to place more power supplied tools in different part of your house, so these will work as a repeater.

You should be able to get at least 10 metre range.

You can compare the range of Zigbee with the range of Wifi. Both are operating in the same frequency range. The range between floors is dependable of the type of floor (wood, concrete, etc). If you have wifi range problems (or poor performance) you may expect the same for Zigbee. In that case it is important to add some routers in your Zigbee network. Most of the devices operating on main (like powerplugs) behave as routers.
