Outstanding Quality for a budget friendly price.

My grandma asked me for help fixing her 2 floor house wifi, I could have simply put a couple of extenders and call it a day but I decided to go beyond and a run a Wifi Site map. I initially was skeptical about if this was worth the time bit I waS so wrong, I got my mind blown away once I looked at the results, it was amazing.

Netspot was a big surprise for me. I’ve done countless projects with other software and NetSpot surprised me with its ease and simplicity. It has a lot of features and doesn’t lose anything with its competitors.

One drawback

The app works great, intuitive and easy to use. The Windows app cannot adjust the order the zones are displayed. When surveying a multi level building, the reports are not clear as the zones are all mixed up. The feature appears to be available in mac. I hope the windows app can have the same zone reorder feature added too. It’s a very basic but essential requirement. The app should work the same independently of the OS type.

I needed a solution to map and optimize a residential wifi network. Several issues compounded the challenge separate to wifi signal strength & quality but there were distinct interference issues from nearest neighbor routers and a CCTV monitoring system that required diagnosing.
After sampling a few apps I leaned toward Netspot’s ease of use and cross platform functionality to deliver what I needed. However, a key selling feature to me has been the ongoing technical support guiding results interpretation and tuning wifi adjustments. Bravo Netspot!

Fantastic tool for the best home WiFi signal

NetSpot is a seriously professional product at consumer prices. For home users it can demystify WiFi signal strength variations and provide the information needed for router, access point, or mesh placement(s) and WiFi signal propagation. As many IT folks have reviewed this product, this review is written with the home user in mind. For the basic tech-savvy home user, I think it’s the best bang-for-the-buck WiFi analysis and heat map product out there.

Having said this, it has a moderate learning curve. Although it lacks a cohesive online or printed operation manual, the online “Help” section is well laid out and is easy to follow – and, most important, the email support staff at NetSpot are fantastic!!! They have typically responded to me within a business day (often within hours) with polite, concrete answers. With the help of these answers, it was easy to find well-written explanations in the online “Help” section.

To use NetSpot you’ll need a to-scale floorplan of the WiFi area (true of any heat map product). NetSpot makes this easier by allowing the import of JPG files (among other file types), meaning you can take a picture of the floorplan and use it. It’s recommended to begin with a trial version of NetSpot loaded on either a Mac or Windows laptop, which doubles as the WiFi measuring device and producing the heat map product(s). Be sure to read through the NetSpot online “Help” section for guidance.

Don’t be dissuaded by critical reviews on android sites about a similarly named NetSpot survey app. NetSpot offers its survey product (signal strength, overlapping channels, etc.) as an app which is meant to integrate with its Mac or PC product. While some complain this free survey tool requires a paid software package to generate a heat map, it’s actually a fantastic tool that permits an Android phone (or Chromebook) to conduct the survey, rather than taking around a laptop or desktop computer. Due to Apple’s iPhone app restrictions, it’s not possible to use an iPhone for this purpose.

In summary, this is the tool you’ve been looking for to find out exactly what WiFi signals are getting though in some parts of your house, but not others. Discover what WiFi channels have interference from neighbors or from your own APs. See download speeds. Quit guessing.

Remarkable, Intuitive, and Powerful Software

NetSpot has made it so much easier for my organization to perform site surveys, monitor wireless performance, and fix dead spots in our network. It was incredibly intuitive to use, and can generate some very helpful, and comprehensive reports. NetSpot is a MUST have tool for any MSP, Infrastructure Installer, or IT Department.

Great Little Utility

I’m glad I found NetSpot. It’s a very simple easy to use application that does exactly what I need it to do – show me the important info for all access points in the area and also survey my locations to let me know if we have any weak spots that need better coverage.
