Goodbye to poor Wi-Fi coverage… An app that measures the good location of your home Wi-Fi network using augmented reality

We often forget that our homes are full of invisible Wi-Fi signals that allow us to perform our online activities. But what if we could observe them and how they interact with our environment? What if we found the best places for Wi-Fi reception? Thanks to augmented reality, we have applications that allow us to do this. In this article, we will explore some of these apps available on Google Play Store and App Store.

WiFi AR is an application that allows you to visualize your WiFi or cellular network in augmented reality mode. It allows you to find the best Wi-Fi location in your home, check your connection speed and ping value, and detect duplicate networks.

Once you turn it on, you’ll be taken to a screen where you can choose what you want to visualize as a Wi-Fi or 4G network. When you select Wi-Fi, for example

You have to walk around your house a bit and the app will give you the correct Wi-Fi signal readings in every corner of your house. At the bottom of the screen there are options for more detailed visualization. For example, Ping lets you find the best places in your home with the lowest Ping for uninterrupted online gaming.

The app displays colorful cards floating in the air that show dBm values, i.e. Wi-Fi signal power levels at each specific location. This visual representation allows users to identify areas with strong or weak Wi-Fi coverage.

With this information, they can determine where to connect the devices to get the optimal signal level. In addition, the need to install repeaters to expand coverage in areas with weak spots is being mapped.
