Does each Orbi satellite have to "see" the router?

Does each Orbi satellite have to "see" the router?

Hi  - just a question about how the Orbi system works.  Does  each satellite have to be close enough to the router to have a good signial with it, or just close enough to the nearest other satellite?  i.e.  is it kind of  a daisy chain?

 

Thanks.

30 feet is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected. https://kb.netgear.com/000036466/How-far-should-I-place-my-Orbi-satellite-from-my-Orbi-router

 

Or you can enable Daisy Chain on the RBR and set your RBS out in a line from each other so they piggy back off each other in a Daisy Chain.
