Dear 100 Hour Board,

I have a friend whose toddler son has Type I diabetes. He has a continuous glucose monitor, which connects via bluetooth to his mom's phone. However, the bluetooth doesn't extend throughout the entire house, so his mom only is connected to his monitor when they are in close vicinity within the house. This makes things difficult, especially when considering the toddler is the youngest of three active kids. Does anyone know of a way to "extend" the bluetooth signal throughout the house, similar to how one can extend a WiFi signals?

Thanks, you all rock.



Dear Friend,

There are devices called bluetooth repeaters which will take in bluetooth signals and repeat them back out. The main thing you are going to want to look for is range. Some bluetooth repeaters are used to connect a large amount of devices over a short distance and have very short ranges. Make sure you read reviews carefully so you can find one with a sufficient range. Hope this helps!
