Hi those interested with maximum distance the Sky may work from the Hub and how good the RSSI reception value is.
Today I experimented moving my Sky around my suburb while the hub was upstairs inside the window. With line of sight I was approximately 700m away (2300ft) and the RSSI value was -75 working well.
In other areas without line of sight it continued working through houses to a maximum (Or minimum) RSSI value of -91 before I lost reception at about 500m through houses and trees.
With such great success I have plans for some longer distance line of sight testing…
I am interested to hear if you have the Sky working at longer distances and if you have done anything to improve the signal strength, by perhaps adding reflectors or anything?
This image shows the area that my Sky was functioning while my hub was upstairs inside the window of my house. I cropped the image in line on each of the streets at the last point that I was still getting connection. My house is on the high point of the area so the signal only went through parts of the odd houses and trees, it doesnt go through multiple houses.
