Your Wi-Fi survey app for Mac and Windows

Wi-Fi surveys are the key feature of NetSpot. You run a survey by walking, marking your position on the map, giving NetSpot a few seconds to collect data samples, watching Wi-Fi networks being detected and visualized. 15+ heatmap coverage graphs are available with powerful customizable reports.

Plan WiFi networks of any size with just 1 hotspot

When you are coming to an absolutely new space that needs a new WiFi network setup you cannot possibly know how many access points it will eventually require to create a perfect coverage.

With NetSpot, setting up new wireless networks is no longer a guess work. All you need is one or several portable access points to assess a potential WiFi coverage and plan it perfectly. Just start a new survey project, place your hotspot in the designated location, take a few samples, repeat with another location.

Once done, merge your survey snapshots as if you were measuring an existing network with multiple access points.
