What about metal roofs, lead paint, and metal-coated windows?

The Home Base and iota will still work under these conditions, however this would make it more difficult for the iota to get a GPS lock.  In general it is best to keep both devices at least two inches away from metal objects.  For more information, take a look at our performance tips.

    Is any of this product open source? Do you have a schematic of the device you can share?
