NetSpot 3.0 for Android is here, and now, additionally to being able to discover and inspect the surrounding Wi-Fi networks and perform a high-efficiency Wi-Fi site surveys, it allows you to build Wi-Fi heatmaps directly on your mobile device.
The color-coded Wi-Fi heatmaps allow you to see how the wireless network signal covers the intended area, and help you determine your network’s strong and weak spots. You can easily make a decision, based on what you see, where the current setup can be changed to achieve a steadier signal, less interference, and an overall smoother connection.
To perform a wireless site survey and gather all the needed data to generate Wi-Fi heatmaps for comprehensive visual analysis of your wireless network, begin with creating a new survey project. You can take a picture of your floor plan/map, load it in NetSpot, calibrate it, and start taking measurements in different spots of the surveyed space. Once done with signal measurements, you can build a heatmap on your Android device straight away*, or you can export the project and open it in NetSpot for Mac or Windows to generate thorough and comprehensive wireless heatmaps on your desktop**.
*Available through in-app purchase — NetSpot Plus. Read more about types of heatmaps included in NetSpot Plus.
**Works with NetSpot Home, PRO or Enterprise on desktop.
