What is Sub-GHz technology?


Sub-GHz also known as Sub-1 GHz is an innovative IoT solution to automate and control smart home devices through the lower-than-1Ghz new wireless frequency characterized by Long Range, Less Susceptible to Interference and Extremely Low Power. Tapo Sub-GHz devices operates on the frequency of 868Mhz in Europe and 922Mhz in America.

Why do we need Sub-GHz ?


  • Long Range


Sub-G boasts long-range transmission. It shows strong signals even in obstructed conditions in big cities. You are free to put sub-devices like wire-free camera, motion sensor or Tapo Sub-G devices anywhere within range of the smart hub’s signal.


  • Less Susceptible to Interference:


Sub-1 GHz avoids the 2.4 GHz frequency used by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee, free from interference from the many 2.4 GHz devices in daily life. 


  • Extremely Low Power:


Sub-GHz consumes little power compared to its 2.4 GHz counterparts. This makes it ideal for battery-powered devices. Many of the Tapo Sub-G devices use cell buttons or AAA batteries that could last a year or longer.


How to Build a Sub-GHz Network?

Sub-GHz network requires a central hub as a bridge to the internet. As the below network topology, the Tapo smart hub takes the role of the IOT gateway. It connects to your home router through a 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi network and broadcasts a Sub-GHz wireless network for the other sub-devices.



  •  Tapo Smart hubTapo H100 Tapo H200) connects to your home 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi network.
  •  Tapo Sub-G devices are paired with the Tapo smart hub and centrally managed by the hub.
