    There are two G2 versions of the SSRneon.
    The"G2" and the "G2-LED".
    They are very similar in layout.

    I felt the g2 led was a step too far for me. I just wanted to open the ta200 see power on both sides of the fuse. And the data 5v led.

If the AP has to first receive a wireless signal and re-transmit it out to all the other stations you're sure to get some serious lag in there somewhere along the way and you wouldn't be a happy camper...

    While wireless opens doors, it also will present you with situations that are sometimes difficult to address and/or fix. We live in a connected world and everybody and their dog (literally -- you can put a wireless locator on your dog!) has connectivity. This means there are a lot of radios out there that all have to use the same channel space in the 2.4ghz frequency spectrum. Last time I ran a site survey from my AP mounted on the front of my house I found 53 networks. It's literally true: "We are not alone!" Wireless may work fantastic for your buddy who lives a few blocks away at the end of a cul-de-sac but terrible for you because you're in the middle of the block amidst a flock of teenagers and their cell phones.
    Okat, Gotcha on the first part. I'm thinking I would have fairly good network connectivity, if not would a wifi extender be helpful?

    Where I can find more info on the ta200? Is it anything like the TRS80 I used in high school? Lol

    HAH!!! The TA-200 is one of the gray, plastic cases that are popular for small SSRs and controllers. Several DIY vendors sell them. Whether a wi-fi extender is helpful to you or not depends on your situation. Might... might not.... A good way to test is to walk around your yard with your smartphone, tablet or laptop and see how good your wi-fi connection is from various places.

    This adapter makes one of these SSRs into a standalone 4-channel wireless Wi-Fi controller that connects to a wireless router. RenW isn't necessary at all.

    The forum is loaded with information about the RenardESP, and ESPixelsSticks, and the ESP8266 module. Look around a bit and you'll find oodles of it.

    Only 5? Lucky you. Last time I checked from my house I had 53.
