Mesh technology allows the bulbs to communicate with each other, in order to propagate the bulb-to-bulb signal in the habitat.
Depending on the arrangement of bulbs in the house, if each bulb is within the range of another bulb (located within ten meters of each other), then an order (eg extinction or ignition) can spread through each light bulb to cover the entire habitat. We consider that the network of mesh bulbs allows to have an extended reach in the house.
Regarding the scope of a smartphone with the "first" bulb of the mesh network, it depends on the RF quality of the smartphone. In general, the range of control of a smartphone is between 10 and 20 meters.
