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.

Excellent This app did exactly what I wanted it to do. Would be nice to be able to hit a button and have it collect a bunch or samples over a small specified time interval and then average the results rather than just collecting one sample for a given position. I think this would average out some of the error to obtain more accurate results.

Map data is not cached The map data is not cached, therefore if you are in a building or without good connection you do not see the map. It is necessary to see the map since you have put in your position on the map by hand. There is no GPS tracking of your exact position integrated. Only at the beginning the app accesses GPS to frame your survey area.

Umm I have 10 aps in about 300meters of coverage, doesn't give me a clear heat map, even if I choose only one at.

Pretty good. needs gps support The only thing this is missing is sampling and tracking vis gps. You have to manually take a sample. I would very much like a gps option like kismet with gps. Also triangulation of detected ap would be a huge win.

Very handy Once I figured out the mapping process it has been very handy for mapping coverage.
