5 Remote sensors  A,B,C  switches
I just installed the new Access . Lost connection to 3 of 5 sensors.  Pulled batteries ,reinstalled, moved the switches from all A to some B some C.   4 of 5 work    The most remote one 200ft  works close but not at location required.   I saw a note saying the booster will not work with the new Access.  My feeling is that ABC switches are not required for connection . What about distance?

The "ABC" switch is only to connect the display with a sensor. The SmartHub and the Access see all sensors that are close by (my SmartHub can see two other 5-in1's and a 3-in-1 that are all nearby. I've even added them in the past just to compare differences with my 5-in-1.

FWIW.  my sensors will show a "4" signal, and then disappear for no apparent reason, then come back again.  I have found that having my access close to my TV seems to make this problem worse. Turning on the TV would cause all signals to be lost but then they may come back again.  Perhaps you can move your Access?

I will move it . It is next to a printer now.   That was interesting.  Moved the Access 4ft away . Had to unplug it to do that . After a  reload the distant sensor was online with 4 bars.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Just a short note: I moved my Access from my computer room to a window looking directly at, and less than 20' from my 5-in-1. It's a bathroom, with absolutely no electronics other than the lighting. Made no difference. BUT - telneting into the Access shows that it sees the sensors, so...

After I moved the access it worked for a bit ,then lost 2 sensors, the original plus one right outside.   I moved it again higher up  and it recovered. As of right now all five work. Plus the 5 in 1.
This is wierd.
