I am thinking of converting my Navigator to the 2.4 Ghz wireless , just wondering if anybody has had any interference problems ?

I have hue lighting in all rooms on 2.4 Ghz , Drayton automated radiator valves on 2.4 Ghz in all rooms which interfered with the Hue lighting o_O and just to make life really simple my Alarm system is all 2.4 Ghz as well, so just curious if I convert will I end up with more interference problems ?

I am ignoring the 2.4Ghz Wifi..

You forgot the Microwave! - Biggest source of '2.4Ghz' in your house! ;)

No interference issues, but range was an issue. To resolve this I bought the extended airial recievers for the handsets, probably worthwhile if you are going to RC from scratch. I have a longish 80ft range to cope with, some down a narrow gap with a Tin Shed at the end which was where the range issue manifested itself. The long aerial RC solved it perfect.
