Choosing the location of your Control Panel is an important decision because the rest of the system will be designed and tested to work with the device in that location. Any movement of the Control Panel after the installation should be kept to a minimum.
Here are some tips for selecting the location of your Control Panel:
✓ Make sure this is a convenient location in the home - usually near the main entrance
✓ Your Control Panel should be in close proximity to a power outlet
✓ The location should be within Wi-Fi range
Note: If you are experiencing connectivity problems after your installation, double check your Control Panel has not been moved. If yes, make sure the panel is relocated back to the original location and see if this resolves your issues.
