I currently am using the AcuRite Access and various temperature and humidity sensors that are working fine and have excellent signal strength (BTW switched over from the SmartHUB and signal strength improved significantly - thanks AcuRite!) I want to add another sensor (either a 06002M or 06044M) to monitor the temp and humidity in a metal pole barn that is over 300 ft away from the Access unit. I am not getting any signal from either of the above sensor models when located in the barn, and have tried moving the sensors to different spots in the barn and still cannot pick up a signal.
I considered adding a wireless signal extender (06053M). I understand that Access cannot be receiving a signal from any sensors in order for the signal extender to work. If I uninstall the batteries in all of the other sensors (or put all the sensors in the barn) so that no signals are seen by the Access, then install the signal extender, then bring the previously existing sensors back into range in their previous locations, any chance that they would then work, including the one in the pole barn? I could probably get the signal extender located within 100 ft of the sensor in the pole barn).
Or am I just plain screwed with trying to monitor conditions inside the pole barn? Suggestions appreciated.
