If you buy more than one set of Duet how many controllers can you use? We got a big house and it is tiresome to always look for the controller when you're at the other end of the house, so I was wondering if I bought another Duet: Can there be two (more than one) controllers?

How many do you want? :) There's probably a point where it becomes tricky from a network management point of view but I would think anything up to 100 or so should be fine if you have the bandwidth. I've had up to 3 on my network here.

Hi Radish,

Great. I didn't think that there was a limit but i thought it was better to ask before I bought another one. Thanks.

I'd be a bit more conservative. But 20 or so should be trivial. its just
WiFi. There may be some 256 limits in the WiFi protocols.

20 or 100.It doesn't really matter. It is has to be a big house before you need that many :)

And then you'd need multiple access points, so that would divide the
bandwidth. Also I doubt that a non-active SBC uses a lot of bandwidth.
Unless you're running a hotel or something.
