Yongnuo with Nikon ITTL vs Wireless problem

Hi. Something strange with these flashes.

Purchased 3 new YN968N along with a YN 560 TX II trigger.
If I use a flash in ITTL mode with my D7200 on camera flash set to NO light (to avoid lens shadow), I get the proper amount of power to light a room for my real estate shoots. The problem is there are other flashes lighting hallways etc, that cannot see the infra red signal when in ITTL so they don't fire.
If I mount the trigger and use wireless manual slave mode ...even at full power, I get at least 3 stops less light than than using ITTL and the room is insufficiently lit.
This means the wireless function is basically useless to me unless I can learn what the problem is. Everything appears to be communicating and changing to full power on the trigger is reflected on the flash.
Ideas?
