No.  Camera left is a cloth covered office panel made of panel/press board.  Camera right is a metal door, but it's always open just as it is in the picture.

Weird that it does not work. No OBVIOUS interference sources or such. Maybe someday someone will have one of those Z-Wave network test units that you could borrow and "see" what the area looks like.

Well, all's well that ends well.  It works like a charm with the dongle dangling from the ceiling.   The next switch going in will be a zigbee - hopefully it'll be an easier install/connect.

900 MHz is a wavelength of 33.3 cm, so one would expect some rather crude interference patterns, so you may have found yourself in a quiet zone.

Probably not it. That was even older than I though, as I was thinking one of the broad-range 900mhz style ones that were popular... I want to say mid-90s is when they came out.
