Multiple wifi remotes
#1
Wink 
I'm planning to throw the wifi remote along with the temperature sensor, light sensor, and a couple relays into a box to control my outside shades.  I plan on making one such box for each group of shades, for a total of 5 boxes.  I've a couple of questions about the wifi remote as the documentation is quite spotty.

- The first question is whether I can connect 5 such boxes containing 5 wifi remotes to a single Pine64?  I would prefer to simplify the network as much as possible and avoid having to put a full computer in each box.

- Is the I2C bus of the wifi remote an extension of a Pine64 I2C bus, or is it separate?

- Equally importantly, is the addressing on the bus I2C bus of the wifi remotes separate?  The temperature sensor does not allow setting the I2C address, so you can only have one on the bus which would not work if the buses were all joined together to one, and with 5 boxes with a couple sensors and relays, I'd quickly run very close to the limit of I2C addresses.

- What's the range of the on-chip wifi antenna?
