    Distance for signal travel

    Looking to add a few sensors out in my barn. Couple window, man door and an overhead door and a siren.

    Things is my barn is about 500' from the house, where my Zee controller is located.

    Will and insteon signal travel that far? The barn power is being fed directly from the house panel.

    there seems to be msgs on the smarthome forum that indicate 500" via powerline shouldn't be an issue:

    RF seems to be limited to 150 ft based on the specs

    please respond with your results so others can benefit from your experience.
