Wireless Diff Expansion?

Hello all,

I'm having trouble figuring this out, so I thought I'd reach out to you all for some advice.

I currently run my main display on at the front of my house with an F16v3. I use a differential expansion board plugged into the main board within the box and then run a 100 foot CAT5e cable to the rear of my house where I have the receiver board which is then plugged into the lights on my rear fence. If possible... I'd like to get rid of the CAT5e cable but I'm not entirely sure how that'll look...

Any way to run it via WiFi? I guess I'll need some RaspPis to do that?

Any suggestions?

To run it Wi-Fi, you will need an FPP Device or a controller that supports Wi-Fi communication. BUT, pushing sequence data over Wi-Fi can become problematic due to the network traffic required. There is another option, and that is using a Master/Remote mode and that will require an FPP device or a controller that supports remote mode. The line of controllers excel and running in Master/Remote mode.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.
