[TECH] When should I use a mesh network?

Mesh networks are best when small amount of control/monitoring data shall be sent to/from nodes in a mains operated network such as  electricity meters or lights in a home automation system. Mesh networks use router nodes to retransmit messages, and therefore need mains power. It may be combined with battery operated “end nodes”, but this will not take part in the network routing.
