About Lutron Caseta Repeater PD-REP-WH
Here I will go over the use and benefits of a wireless repeater to expand and strengthen your home IoT wireless network.
The range of a Caseta hub/bridge signal is 30 feet in all directions (Up, Down, Left, Right). In some homes, some devices may need to be located beyond this range. If you’re having trouble getting a solid, reliable signal from your Lutron Caseta hub to some parts of your home, then the Lutron Caseta PD-REP-WH repeater will likely be a solution for you.
You can think of the Caseta Repeater as a radio signal “extender” that increases the overall range and reliability of your Lutron Caseta wireless system by “repeating” the radio signal from weak to strong; this extends the hub effective range by a further 30 feet also in all directions, the words repeater and extender can be used interchangeably as they really mean the same thing.
