Only door sensors, large area - How to extent the signal?


I am currently testing a setup that only uses door/window sensors (Aqara) running on a SONOFF Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus,TI CC2652P + CP2102N

As the sensors don’t act as a repeater, what would you suggest to use instead?
The building is pretty big and I will most likely in the end have ~ 100 sensors at least

the only thing i can think of would be to use mains powered smart plugs as repeaters throughout the building.

Or just buy dedicated repeaters. However, I think they are close to the same cost as a plug but then you loose the possibility of using them as smart plugs to control other things.


Thanks for the input

I am going to go with innr smart plugs.

Lets see how many I need of them.
Positive side effect is that you can use them for further things as you said.
