Customer has a detached garage with a switch and light. They'd like to be able to turn on the light from the house. Can I use a Lutron Pico RF switch in this situation? If so, what is the distance range they will operate in?
The listed range for Pico's is 30', but that range is highly conservative. We've tested them in our office, and were able to operate a light in one of our employee's houses from over 100 yards away. My experience with the product says yes, you'll likely be fine. But if you do run into an issue, it's likely not something the manufacturer or supplier will correct for you.
I use the Legrand version of these devices that are on a 2.4ghz Zigbee network. I installed a wireless remote recently between a house an detached garage separated by 100’. The master switch is in the garage behind a metal siding exterior, installed within a metal box and RS cover, and the wireless remote is inside the house. It works perfectly.
