    What kind of range can I expect from MeshWorks?
    I want to use this in a building?  Can it go through brick walls?

    Hi PaulP,

    According to our FAQ, the range really depends on your RF environment. We recommend conducting a range-test in the target environment with one of our modules. Without knowing the target module and environment this is hard to determine.  

    Our MeshWorks - KEY SPECS tab  (scroll down the page) does specify line-of-sight information and typical range information.  It's hard to say what will happen at 2.4GHz in your target environment, the good news is that if you are using a mesh the more nodes you add the more you tend to strengthen the mesh and provide other RF paths that would otherwise be non-existent.

    With this in mind please remember, if you are designing your own hardware using our (MeshConnect modules loaded with MeshWorks software) to follow our hardware and software guidelines that can be found under our EM35x mini-module product pages.
