    Default Proximity between modules

    Can anyone tell me whether having two Z-wave plug-in modules quite close together affects the reliability of them?

    With ByeByeStandby/Domia Lite, they have to be a minimum of 1 metre apart to prevent malfunctioning, just wondering if this is the case with Z-Wave.

    Z-Wave uses a mesh network, so I expect that the closer individual Z-Wave devices are to each other the better they will work. I haven't had the opportunity to test my theory though!

    I have never has problems with multiple modules. The problem is if one module is far from others.

    There are reported problems with two z-wave modules in one gangbox. Personally, I have two gangboxes with two z-wave modules each. One of them is giving problems: the bottom z-wave module does react to signals, but polling is not working. I replaced the module with a new one, only to find out the replacement module gave the same problem. I ran into multiple accounts of this behaviour on the internet.
