Discussion created by Patrick Pan Employee on Feb 18, 2019

Customer can measure communication distance of ZCL command on JN5169 DK boards when one DR1174+DR1175 and  one DR1174+DR1199 available .


1) Flash DimmableLight on DR1174+DR1175 and DimmerSwitch on DR1174+DR1199 respectively  then join them to

    same Zigbee network and binding DimmableLight to DimmerSwitch with following steps:

    a) press DIO8 on DR1175 and observe LED starts flashing;

    b) press and hold DIO8 on DR1199 to see D1 starts blinking then press and hold SW3 on DR1199 till LED on DR1175

        stop flashing, release SW3 then DIO8 .

2) Unmount DR1199 and DR1175 individually , change jump from REG to BAT on both DR1174 then remount DR1199

    and DR1175 , unplug USB cable if it is connected to the DK board , mount 4 Batteries on  bottom side of both DK


3) 2 person with each one holding one DK board and walk in reverse direction, one keeps toggle pressing SW1/SW2

    while another one keeps observing LED until there is no more reaction when SW1/SW2 pressed, where

    the maximum distance ZCL command can be measured.  


Current max-distance of ZCL command on JN5169 DK board ranges from 120 to 160 meters while environment varies.
