Orbi Pro SXK80 - 3 story building with router on 1st floor and satellite on 3rd?

I recently purchased the Orbi Pro SXK80 with 1 satellite for a new home being built. The house has a basement with 3 floors and a rooftop. I'm wondering if I'll be able to get by with the router on the 1st floor and the satellite on the 2nd. The satellite will be located directly above the router with 23ft between them plus wood/drywall.

Will the signal be strong enough or should I anticipate needing additional satellites?

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

Be sure to avoid putting the RBR in a basement. Concrete and steel whill inhibit wifi signal travel.
