Just bought and installed 1st of 3 cameras. Tried to install 2nd a and third by front door and garage and they go offline. Rebooted everything. Seems like they dont have good range.

The range is a max +/- of 300ft baring obstructions ( or metal framing )... Line of sight I've had 150-200ft without problem but really non- obstructed.

 

If you have a large area or wifi blockage, you could 1) move the base to a central location range wise 2) get a second base to extend range.

I'm actually very impressed with the range, particularly on the camera I have behind my house at roof level.  I've never had any glitches with any of my four cams (one inside and three in various locations outside).  I have my base station in a more or less clear area (i.e., not stuck behind a monitor or in a cramped space) -- if that helps.
