Check-list when you install cameras wirelessly
For more stable connection, check the strength of WiFi signal at where the camera is stalled.
1. Checking your Wifi strength:
To check the strength of WiFi, use a smart phone app like WiFi Analyzer. If the app shows the strength of -50dBm or higher, then your WiFi is strong enough.
2. WiFi interference
You can also check WiFi interference using WiFi Analyzer. Check the graphs in the app, and if there are any overlapping areas, change the channel in your WiFi network setting for your WiFi router.
2. Checking the speed of WiFi
Use a smart phone app like BenchBee SpeedTest to see the speed at where the camera is installed. If the app shows 3Mbps or higher, then your WiFi speed is good enough.
* Please be aware that the condition of WiFi connection is strongly affected by environment near by your WiFi. For example, the quality of WiFi router, walls or obstacles between the router and the camera, and interference with other wireless devices around the area can disturb and make the connection unstable.
