WiFi Heat

WiFi Heat


WiFi Heat is a great way to visually show the signal strength of your wireless network with your Android phone or tablet.

WiFi Heat is simple to use--you can create an informative map in minutes. It will create a detailed heatmap that can be used for adjusting your wireless access point settings or location for maximum speed, signal quality and best coverage. You can either use your own floor plan, or simply use Google Maps satellite view. Once you have a map imported into WiFi Heat, you simply walk around the area the map represents and mark your position.

* WiFi heat will display the signal strength of every wireless network in your survey area.
* Supports multiple building levels and will display 2D or 3D signal strength maps of an area.
* WiFi Heat helps you select which channel is the quietest for minimum interference from neighbors.
* WiFi Heat uses a unique algorithm which accurately estimates signal strength in unknown areas.
* Designed for both phones and tablets, in portrait and landscape orientations.
* Supports metric and imperial systems.
* Visualizations are distinguishable for people who are color blind.
* Professionally made with no tolerance for bugs.

Please note that parabolic antennas have not been tested, so the generated visualisations might not be as accurate as an omnidirectional antenna.

Don't waste your money... Pics look nice, app is pretty lame actually. If you are looking for something where you can take an overlay image (satellite photo, blueprint, etc) and walk around and map WiFi AP signal strengths, then this app is terrible at delivering that. The photos tell a different story, here is why I say don't waste your money: 1) you can take a satellite photo or overlay or whatever for your survey, but the data points that you gather have nothing to do with the image they are overlayed on! There is no setting or feature to allow you to control the SCALING or registration of the image. The datapoints used to generate the heatmap have NO CORRELATION to the image the heatmap is generated over. You would think that at least the google maps satellite image they would be able to scale the GPS location info appropriately, but it is not even close. Useless really... 2) You must manually select the AP you want to sample and then PRESS + to add a sample point. You can't just walk around and sample all the AP's and signal levels in an area. You must select the AP by MAC address and manually add each datapoint it gathers. Imagine if you have a building with a wireless mesh and lots of AP's to test!

Forces google earth maps It would be nice to not gave to be forced to include google earth imagery onto my floor plan. My location does not have high resolution Google earth imagery so it just makes a mess out of the map. Uninstalled.

Almost there This is a great app, and will for the most part do what I need it to do. However three recommendations: 1. Add channel listing to the heat map where it lists AP and Mac. 2. auto plot based off of GPS 3. Combine SSID to a single AP. Add these and you will have a 5 star app.
