Long range needed

I have a shop about 300 ft from my home. I’d like to put a motion sensor in it.
Is it possible to use multiple range extender’s or chime extender’s to make this possible?

@Radar09 Are you talking about a motion sensor for the Ring Alarm Home Security System? If you are, you will need to install a Ring Alarm Range Extender in order to have the range extended from the Alarm’s Base Station. Please note that the Range Extender only extends out 250 ft in clear air with no interference. This does not include walls and other appliances that may be inbetween your Base Station and where this motion sensor is going.

Therefore, you may need 2 or 3 Range Extenders for it to travel and connect all the way out to your shop. Feel free to give it a try, and if you buy the Extenders from Ring and it doesn’t work out, you can always utilize our 30-day refund policy.

What offers the greater range, the chime pro, or a simple range extender?
So I can daisy chain range extenders?
I could put on in the house and one out in the shop and if they each reach 250ft they should be able to meet the long range I need?

@Radar09 The only thing that can extend the range of the Ring Alarm equipment is the Ring Alarm Range Extender, as it communicates on Z-Wave, just like your Motion Detector and other Ring Alarm devices. The Chime Pro is a wifi extender and therefore would not help extend the range of your Alarm’s z-wave network. You can daisy chain Ring Alarm Range Extenders when needed, it’s just not recommended to daisy chain more than 3.

The idea you have of one in your home and one in the shop should help for sure! As long as there is not any extra interference, it should work. If it does not connect or stay online while in your shop, there may be too much interference. If you get to that point, please contact our support team to verify this, but I hope it works well so you do not have to worry about reaching out!
