If the WiFi coverage is not sufficient (in a garden for example), it is possible to make connected objects that communicate with a home automation server or a radio wave application. The nRF24L01 modules operate at a frequency of 2.4GHz. The average free field range of the nRF24L01+PA+LNA modules is 1000m according to the manufacturers. A version with an antenna engraved on the more compact PCB also exists. The range is 100m in free field.

Which module nRF24L01 to choose?

antenne nrf24l01 sma 15dbiThe choice of the module will depend on several criteria which the main:

  • Brought desired:
    • Indoors, a few dozen meters
    • Mixed
    • Outdoor. The receiver (the gateway) will be inside the
  • Configuration: in a House, outdoor, mixed
    • Wall: thickness, constitution (reinforced concrete doesn’t really help), number
    • Flat terrain or relief
    • Vegetation, fence
    • Electromagnetic disturbance: transformer, pumps…
  •  Application
    • Statement of data or actuator control simple (relay…). A low data rate will be enough
    • Data Acquisition. Little data but a high frequency.

Whatever the application, the best is to install a antenna high performance (at least 6dBi) on the gateway to ensure best reception of the data. Equipped with a SMA connector, it will replace the 2dBi antenna that team usually cheap Asian modules.

Adapter with regulated 3.3V power supply

The nRF24L01 radio modules are very sensitive to the quality of the power supply. It is advisable to use an adapter that embeds a quality regulated 3V3 power supply.

Replacement Antenna up to 15dBi
