KB: Mesh for Low Power node

Question:

I’m using RSL10 to build smart street lighting and hotel lighting, using RSL10 Mesh. I have two questions:

  1. Can the low power node of RSL10 Mesh receive a message broadcast to a group of nodes?

  2. How do I make one low power node include both the Relay and Find feature?

Answer

  1. If the LPN was assigned to this group during provisioning, then yes, FN will be forwarding the messages.
  2. The relay node should be always active, and LPN is configured to go into deep sleep mode periodically; therefore, it can’t act as relay. A relay can be implemented with client or server nodes. Check with the customer in regards to use case.
