I have about 50m from my house to where I want to deploy a Xenon or two for some remote outdoor sensing. There is no line of sight with trees and a slope in the environment.
I receive mobile broadband from an LTE mast in the local town to my house using a high-gain directional antenna on the chimney and bring that down into my router. This is ANT1 in the graphic. My ARGON gateway is beside this WiFi router. This WiFi network is called “House”. I have called the Mesh network “VegGarden”.
To connect XENON1 to “VegGarden” (as it does not connect from down there) I was thinking of getting this 2.4GHz 9dBi Outdoor Directional Antenna with an SMA-to-u.fl connector.
Is the problem that “VegGarden” isn’t strong enough to reach down there, or is the on-board XENON1 antenna not powerful enough to find it?
Will ANT2 connected to XENON1 solve this?
If it will, could a second xenon, say XENON2, placed beside or close to XENON1 then connect to “VegGarden” through BTE to XENON1 using just its own on-board antenna?
I have read a little about the shared Wifi Thread/BTE radio on the Xenon and loosely think this will all hang together. I might be way off!
I’d appreciate any feedback…
Many thanks for your time!
