What has to be considered with regard to interferences when installing the CCU or Homematic IP Access Point?
Every electronic device or any current-carrying conductor builds up an electromagnetic field. These fields occur in a wide variety of strengths and frequency ranges.
This applies in particular to objects that emit radio waves:
- WiFi routers
- DECT stations
- Radio speakers and radio headsets
- Audio and video systems
- Alarm systems
- Mobile phones and cordless phones
- Microwave ovens
- Electronic ballasts for fluorescent lamps
- Audio baby-monitors
These interferences can be substantially reduced by keeping a distance as large as possible between the radio components and those potential sources of interference.
We recommend a free installation site for the Central Control Unit or Access Point without the above-mentioned sources of interference in direct vicinity (ideally at least 1 m distance), in order to achieve an optimal wireless coverage.
