|Abstract:||One of the problems faced in the use of wireless networks in a multi-storey building is the damping effect of walls. Radio signals can be strongly attenuated, which results in poor or even impossible communication. In such cases, routers are often used to provide continuity. However, depending on the number of routers, this solution could lead to higher costs. In this paper, we present a low cost alternative. We use available modules to show how distant devices can easily be connected. We first discuss the requirements of such a connection with regards to 802.15.4 / ZigBee, and then present our hardware and software olutions.|
